GENERAL
New Additions: E-books are surging in popularity. Both the University of Virginia and the University of Pennsylvania have extremely large online libraries with titles available for download at no charge... the Christian Classics Ethereal Library, originally a project of Wheaton University, has hundreds of titles including online Bibles in several languages including Chinese, commentaries, MP3 audio files and even links to public domain hymns setup as MIDI files...You could live on Refdesk for a year and still never exhaust the treasure trove of useful info you can find organized in one place...CEO Express is another one that could take you years to get through. They have special subscription services that are worth the price for busy folks, plus free e-mail (it works a little clunky, but hey, it's free). Also check out Indiana University's Worldwide List of Orchestras and Classical.net's list of worldwide ensembles and orchestras.
