National Academies Reports Available Online

Earlier this month the National Academies (composed of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council) announced the digital availability — “free, searchable, and in full text” — of more than 9,000 reports from 1863 to 1997 upon completion of the first phase of a partnership with (who else!?!) Google. The entire collection of some 11,000 reports should be digitized by 2001.
