Post subject:  Legal online sources for free books

In my search for older books that are out of copyright but still a good match compared to their modern competitors I utilize some online pages to find them, hopefully they are useful to others too:

Google Books
The advance search function on google books can bring a lot results depending on your input but often of varying quality with many books that are not online and/or for free available.
https://books.google.de/advanced_book_search

Internet Archive
A massive archive that will surely return useful results.
https://archive.org/

M√ľnchener Digitalisierungszentrum
A German page but it also has foreign material in it, the scans are very good and not like the material that is scanned by google.
http://www.digitale-sammlungen.de/index.html?c=nd&l=de


If anyone as other source please post them and I will add them here so we get a compact list of possible sources for research.

PS It would be nice if someone makes this thread sticky.
