From the Western European Studies Section of the Association of College & Research Libraries, this site lists Internet sources for literary texts in the western European languages other than English. Translations are mentioned only when they are included in collections of original language texts, or when they are themselves of interest. Collections are listed more or less in order of size; indivdual authors are listed alphabetically. EuRoDocs lists many historical and social science texts in western European languages.
These open access sources are readily available to all - without fees or subscriptions. The links connect to European primary historical documents that are transcribed, reproduced in facsimile, or translated.
