My university subscribes to EEBO, Early English Books On-line --
basically the complete STC of printed books up to 1700, each opening of
the book as a separate image.  It's a wonderful thing to have available,
though admittedly finding text in a book is a little hit-or-miss (and
slowish, depending on your computer) since you can't as yet search for
text, only titles.  I understand it costs an arm and a leg, as well.
