to present digital library

P: n/a

Libraries’ users ask for more and more accessible information
and for even more complete and updated catalogues. The Italian
language is spreading all over the world and expecially in the United
States where more and more students study Italian as a second language
and they require information for opening up new horizons to a
different culture.
Libuk, an Italian pioneer firm in the field of new publishing
technologies, gives an answer to these needs with Biblioteca Digitale.
Biblioteca Digitale is a web based service that provides access to
Italian full text ebooks organized in thematic collections. All these
books are written in Italian and they are published by distinguished
Italian firms.
Thank to the ebook technologies, it’s possible to keep all the
value of the traditional book and also to offer a better service in
term of a major quality and efficiency.

Italian content

Biblioteca Digitale is the first ebook platform for libraries which
has an original Italian content. In fact, some important Italian
publishers partecipate only to this Italian ebook web based service.

Pdf format

It reproduces the paper edition exactly, it ensures usability and it
offers search functionalities in the text (for example: search of
specific items, chance to highlight, add notes and bookmarks to the
text, etc...).

Integration of resources

Thanks to the powerful search-engine, you can search all the texts in
the selected collection at the same time.

Notable costs decrease

The e-copy costs less than the paper copy and it allows at least 3
simultaneous users. You buy the e-copy only one time: every year you
just pay the web fee (no more than 100 $) for the mainteinance.

The catalogue subject

BIBLIOTECA DIGITALE’s catalogue is divided into thematic
packets: the library
may choose to buy a specific packet assuring the coverage of that
subject area. The subjects already present in the catalogue, which is
stadily updated and augmented, are: Classics, Politics, Current
Issues, Philosophy, Sociology, Antropology, Italian and Foreign
Fiction, Italian Literature, Psychanalysis and Religion.

The costant update

The library may choose to add all just published titles to its
collection in the fields of interest through a standing order .

The publishers’ prestigious catalogues

The following publishers have already joined Biblioteca Digitale:
Fazi, Meltemi, Editori Riuniti, Newton Compton, Edizioni Universitą
della Santa Croce, Castelvecchi, Ancora del Meditterraneo, Arcana and
Silab Edizioni Multimediali.

Discounts on paper copies

The ebook doesn’t want to replace the paper book; we offer
interesting discounts on the paper copies of the catalogue of
Biblioteca Digitale.

A period of free trial

Libraries and istitutions may ask for 30 days free trial to introduce
this service to their patrons.

How it works

The library purchases the ebooks one to one or in thematic packets,
choosing the number of simultaneous users to activate from a minimum
of 3, at the price of an e-copy, to unlimited users. The user have
access to the full text versions (not only the bibliography or the
abstract), browsing the catalogue or through a boolean search.
