 With apologies for cross-posting;

For  listmembers interested in the history of scientific illustration, Stuttgart's DSI database will be invaluable:
I'm embarrassed that I didn't know about it before Dr. Hentschel's posting.  

NB The DSI database welcomes new entries and additions/corrections to existing entries.

Science Gossip and the other  digital humanities projects listings in in Sally Frampton's posting might also be of interest
