Check out the Virtual Library section on culture collections - there
are a number of sources there.

Also, you may want to post this question to specific mail lists
(rather than newsgroups) that deal with pharmaceutics, food, or other
types of microbiology.  A complete listing of these mail lists is also
available on the Virtual Library: Microbiology and Virology section.

The URL is http://microbiol.org/vl_micro

Good Luck
