This looks interesting.

Form the publicity materials sent to me this morning:
On behalf of the Bavarian State Library in Munich, Germany, I would like to inform you about, a new online review platform for European history, which launched on January 21st 2011. will create a Europe-wide, multi-language platform for reviews of historical literature. is a joint project of the Bavarian State Library (BSB) Munich, the German Historical Institute Paris (DHIP) and the Institute for European History (IEG) Mainz - funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). is committed to the principles of Open Access. All content will be permanently accessible free of charge. The reviews and publications on the platform focus on work published in Europe and featuring European topics, including many publications on Medieval History. The platform’s navigational languages are English, German and French, while the reviews may be written in any European language.
 Check it out yourself: although in its infancy, the site seems to me one replete with possibility.
