Following this: Is there some way to make it easier to quote and find relevant texts?

Hebrewbooks is a great site, very helpful with sources and texts, a wonderful interface and good options. Still, sometimes looking up a book can be frustrating and annoying.

Is it possible to have a reference to good texts, and/or good versions of books (e.g. SA with nosei kelim etc.) to use when quoting?

    By the way, WikiShivah has a sort of agreement with Responsa.co.il that automatically has a "מקור" feature: You put the book name in, and choose chapter and verse (or whatever), and it gives you a free link (this page quotes one such link)

Dr. Melech Tanen's "Sources on the Net" is such a reference.

This might also be useful for earlier works: http://rabbinics.org/


WikiText (וויקיטקסט) is also really great!!


(Thanks to @Moses here)


I wanted to make a wiki to combine answers and add, perhaps by category:
