Torrossa Digital Library: wider horizons for extended coverage

Casalini Libri and Erasmus Boekhandel welcome prestigious international publishers to the Torrossa Digital Library, enhancing its catalogue with high quality French and English language digital content.
Well known as an important source for digital publications in the Humanities and Social Science from Italy and the Vatican City, Spain and Portugal, Torrossa now considerably extends its coverage. A result of the recently established collaboration and increasingly fruitful synergy between Casalini Libri and Erasmus Boekhandel, new agreements have been defined with several prominent publishers from France, the Netherlands, the UK, United States and further afield.
Over twenty imprints join more than 300 publishers already hosted on the platform, with in excess of 20,000 e-books added to the catalogue in the first few months of collaboration and yet more to come.
