The Getty has just opened its Virtual Library, where 250 book pdfs can be read online or downloaded. Some titles of interest include Julia Margaret Cameron: The Complete Photographs, Between Two Earthquakes: Cultural Property in Seismic Zones and Illuminating the Renaissance: The Triumph of Flemish Manuscript Painting in Europe. They follow the University of California Press, which released 700 books online for free yesterday, including 28 art history books.

Thank you. I'm going to add this to my list of 'awesome places that have put awesome things on the net, that I could end up spending my workday looking at, but will painfully pry my eyes away and not look at until another (hopefully sooner then later) time' file.

The subtitle for for this file is "DAMN YOU Metafilter (fist shake icon)? Why you make work so hard?"
