Turning Pages project at the British Library

The British Library has been developing a really useful resource, turning much loved and rare classics into online texts. The great thing about the Turning Pages project is that the books are available in their original format (e.g. Lewis Carroll's classic 'Alice's Adventures Underground' can be seen in his original handwriting) and the technology used makes it appear that you can actually turn the page. In addition, there is a printed form, plus an audio version.

More information can be found on the BBC online news service or, of course, at the British Library website.
