A very easy way to find books, articles, or documents on the web, that are freely available, is the Free PDF Books, PDF Books Search Engine . The user interface is reduced to the bare necessities. The Google search engine seems to be behind it, so you could do the same and more using Google's advanced search.

During the Easter holydays I spent a couple days in a rural area. I had planned to take my laptop along and to connect to the internet using a standard dial-up connection. I had done it last year, it was slow but feasable, if the motivation was high enough.

Looking back, my posts form a collection of my interests, some experiences mostly about teaching and technology, some tips, and a variety of paraphernalia, I find interesting. Along with the stuff I am interested in, I also collect stuff that could be of interest to my students. I write and collect them because I am lazy.
I use this blog as a box, where I can put stuff, I want to remember. I use keywords (look at my tagadelic) to organize them. I google my own site, if I can not find post I have written.

A simple way to find resources published by universities or academic institutions is to use the Google search. The site parameter can be used to restrict the search to the academic domain, if such a domain is defined in the country you are interested in. Unfortunately not all countries do have an academic top level domain. Canada or Germany for example do not have such a top level domain.
