  1. Hi Willem,
    You might like to add the Sharing the Word ELibrary, an initiative set up to assist Catholic seminaries in the majority world. It already provides direct access to over 6000 open source books, journals, periodical articles, theses, papers, etc.. It is in the format of a Koha catalogue with multiple access points, including subjects, keywords, item type and often provided with abstracts. It can be found at http://sharingtheword.intersearch.com.au.
    I hope that this resource will add a little to the other great resources on your list.
