Research links you need to know about I: BSB digitalization
There are just a few sites I check every day, or even multiple times each day. The one I check most often (via RSS feed) and where I most often find something new, useful, surprising, or just plain cool has got to be the digitalization project of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek. Their area of focus is 16th century printed books (in order to digitize their holdings of VD16 titles), but you'll also find a rich collection of medieval manuscripts, musical works, non-Western works, and many others. Check it every day. It's better than Christmas.
