I'm surprised this hasn't been posted already.

Bartleby offers a whole host of useful online information, including (but not limited to) encyclopaedia, dictionaries, thesauri, quotations, style guides, the Oxford Shakespeare, King James Bible, Gray's Anatomy, collected poetic works, H.G. Wells's History of the World, and various works of fiction and non-fiction.
