Visit the Digital Public Library!

The Digital Public Library of America makes freely available the riches of America's libraries, archives, and museums. Far more than a search engine, the portal provides innovative ways to search and scan through the united collection of millions of terms, including by timeline, map, virtual bookshelf, format, subject and partner. --from website
