I have a link that could prove very usefull for chilean and south american history, free of charge and very easy to use, personally i regard it as the 8th wonder of the modern world,
It's a website called memoriachilena.cl heres the link:http://www.memoriachilena.cl/602/w3-channel.html
I know this is an old post but I figure it could eventually help some one else.
Gile na Gile, what a good idea, I have used the sites that you have posted, fordam and celt are excellent resources, I have whiled away many an hour browsing these sites both for study and leisure. With Project Guttenburg many of the classics are at hand as you say, plus out of print and more obscure literature, all of which can give a particular ‘feel’ to a period of history under study.
May I contribute;
A rather good site for anyone with an interest in the ancient near east.
ETANA (Electronic Tools and Ancient Eastern Archives) http://www.etana.org/
And its sister search site;
Abzu is a guide to networked open access data relevant to the study and public presentation of the Ancient Near East and the Ancient Mediterranean world. http://www.etana.org/abzu/
