libSOS and 'archival swicki'

I've posted a few new items over libSOS in the last week or so, mainly free magazine giveaways and free book promotions. I've also added a swicki to the site,, an archival media related search portal -- it grabs mostly from university archives, free e-book collections, and public-domain related repositories. Have a look, take it for a spin, and feel free to submit sites for it if you see where it needs tweaking. This engine is mainly meant for teachers, librarians, students, writers and artists who need access to some of this more obscure and hidden material. Content ranges wildly, but is focused mainly on literature and arts. I made it because I often find myself in need of some kind of meta public-domain/archival interface, and haven't been able to find a good one yet for all my needs -- I hope this swicki will be that interface. We shall see. That's all the news that fits.
