From the article quoted below: "Turning the Pages, the unique interactive touch screen system devised by the British Library, is going in its entirety on the web. From 20th April all nine of the treasures whose pages can be 'turned' by visitors to the Library will become just as accessible on the www."
Four books are already online next week. You'll need to have Macromedia Shockwave running to use TTP.

It's all online now:

Turning the Pages brings together on the web treasures of several of the world cultures that are represented in Britain today: the Diamond Sutra (Buddhism), Sultan Baybars' Qur'an (Islam), the Golden Haggadah (Judaism), plus the Lindisfarne Gospels, Sherborne Missal, Luttrell Psalter and Sforza Hours (Christianity), along with scientific works (Leonardo da Vinci's Notebook, Elizabeth Blackwell's Herbal and Andreas Vesalius's De Humani Corporis Fabrica, a rare sixteenth century treatise on anatomy)."

I walked past the library this morning, and was tempted to go inside and take a look at the manuscripts. It looks amazing. I love the statue on the grounds too, its brilliant to walk past in the morning!
