Digitized Hymenoptera books

The latest entry in the University Library's Digitized Book of the Week
blog at http://www.library.uiuc.edu/blog/digitizedbotw/ highlights a grant
that I received to digitize books on bees, wasps, and ants from UIUC and
the Field Museum. Please check it out! It's particularly nice that these
materials will be included in the Biodiversity Heritage Library
(http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/).

Only about half of the 175 volumes covered by the grant have been
digitized up to now, so stay tuned for many more strange and wonderful
materials. Also, if the money holds out we may be able to digitize a few
more hymenoptera-related titles. Let me know if you have any suggestions
for out-of-copyright books that I might have missed.
