Quick one from me.

Have been down at Kings College today giving Stanley Nyburg a hand 
with some computing issues.  This brought up the topic of archiving
old crystallographic text books on the web for historial and scholarly 
reasons.  

Would this be a good thing for the IUCr to be doing where
possible?

What are the thoughts of this?  It could create some nifty
historical resources - as well as assist with good teaching
resources and XRD diagrams for teaching.  (many of the early
books seem to have put quite a lot of effort into their
diagrams?)

E.g. as a starter.

X-ray Analysis of Organic Structures by S.C. Nyburg (1961)
  (Stan owns the copyright on this - and does not see a problem
   putting this on the web - was my suggestion he consider this)

(for the above book - if the IUCr did not see the point of this - 
I would be relatively keen to try putting a scanned version on my
personal website)

------------

Other possiblities(?) (though am not personally sure of copyright
holders):

Booth: Fourier Techniques in X-ray Organic Structure Analysis

Lipson and Cochran - The Determination of Crystal Structures

Others? 

Cheers,

Lachlan.
