Just yesterday I shared my excitement over the Library of Congress’ Flickr photostream in the NINES Forum. Today, I stumbled upon yet another fun resource on the web: the Smithsonian’s online gallery of seed catalogs, with objects dating back to the 1830s. More and more interesting objects are appearing online – even faster than NINES can aggregate them, which is why the Forum and Exhibit Builder both provide the option of linking to external websites.
