My Korean history students put into digital format both volumes of IBB's 
stories of her trip through the peninsula.  I have clearance from Project 
Gutenberg to upload them, but I still need to do a proof-reading before that 
happens.  I will try to at least upload the files to another server and will 
post the URLs later.
