The Freer Sackler digital bookshelf
The Freer and Sackler Galleries have digitized a number of their publications. The publications can be read online or downloaded for free. (If I'd known this was coming, I might have held off on tracking down a copy of "Ceramics from the World of Islam.") The ceramics titles are listed below, but books in other subjects - Arts of the Islamic World, Chinese Art, Japanese Art, Korean Art, etc. - would probably be of interest to ceramic artists, too.
Check it out here: http://www.asia.si.edu/research/bookshelf.asp
