I was googling for pictures of some of Silverhill's current seed  
offerings, and discovered Aluka, a digital library of "scholarly  
primary and supporting materials" about and from Africa.

I am currently looking through 72 screenfuls of paintings of Gladiolus  
that are from the South African National Biodiversity Institute, Cape  
Town, South Africa and have been digitized recently.  There are 20  
species per screen, and of course each picture needs to be made larger  
and all the data read.  I'm on screen 3.

I think Aluka is new.  It is free until June 30, so now is a good  
chance to see what they offer.
