National Burns Collection edit / delete

Burns' poetry and songs. This has individual songs scanned from various books, which is quite useful if you don't feel like hunting through the scans on or Google Books. On the downside, it only includes Burns' versions of the songs -- which (and it's probably safe to admit this now Burns Night has passed) aren't always an improvement on the originals; compare "This Ae Night" with the reconstructed "Cold Haily Windy Night"...
