Torrossa Digital Library expands exponentially with thousands of European research publications

More than 100 new publishers joined the platform in 2021, delivering a 400% increase in the academic content on offer to institutions.
Casalini Libri and Erasmus Boekhandel are delighted to announce the success of the first phase of their joint investment to amplify and strengthen the coverage of publishing from across Europe in the Torrossa digital library.
In the first year of this investment, the digital library has expanded fourfold, with a substantial part of the growth coming from independent publishers and international groups publishing in English and French languages, as well as a significant increase in full-text content from Italian and Spanish publishers, traditionally at the core of the library's digital collections.
The venture enters into its second year with equal momentum as the companies look to build upon the positive performance in order to provide an increasingly comprehensive and valuable service to libraries and research institutions, dedicating new resources to collaboration with publishers in Germany and sealing many more exciting partnerships across the European academic publishing spectrum.

Fiesole Retreat 2022 in Athens

Fiesole Retreat in Athens, 5-7 April 2022

Tradition meets innovation

The Fiesole Collection Development Retreat, postponed from 2020, is now scheduled to go ahead as a hybrid event, in Athens and online from 5-7 April 2022.
After two years of distance communication, we are delighted now to be able to meet in person once again for the 22nd meeting in the Retreat series, where we will be kindly hosted by the National Library of Greece at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.
Entitled "Tradition Meets Innovation", the meeting will focus on Cultural Heritage and the Challenges and Opportunities presented by new and emerging approaches, copyright and the effect of initiatives in the EU, as well as Open Access Monographs, Digital Humanities and Research Outputs in search of mutual understandings of opportunities for the scholarly enterprise.
It promises to be an interesting exchange on current topics that are key to the evolving ecosystem of academic publishing. For the full programme and how to register, visit the conference website.
