FRUS as e-book

Very cool. The Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series of volumes is now becoming available in e-book format. It worked perfectly and instantly on my iPad. For Latin America, there are two volumes currently available: Guatemala 1952-1954 and the Cuban Missile Crisis. They note an as yet unresolved problem with page numbers, which is obviously a problem for citations, but the document numbers remain the same.

When I first started graduate school I had to go to the library and look at/photocopy the volumes there, because you couldn't even check them out. Moving to online and then e-book is a huge step forward for public accessibility.
