EIO - Editoria Italiana Online

the full-text platform created by Casalini Libri

Since 1958, Casalini Libri has been the primary source for libraries seeking scholarly publications by a multitude of publishers based in Romance language countries. In keeping with this role and with the changing needs of libraries, Casalini Libri created and maintains its own full-text platform, Editoria Italiana Online (EIO), which offers libraries an ever-growing array of scholarly content options and a variety of commercial subscription solutions.

EIO comprises a representative collection of current, scholarly publications in the Humanities and Social Sciences by some of Italy’s most prominent academic publishers; the platform now hosts over 5200 scholarly ebooks and 360 journals in an easy-to-use, multi-lingual interface with sophisticated search options. Titles are, for the most part, Italian-language publications with some texts in other languages (English, French), and Spanish-language publications will be added soon.

Publishers and Disciplines

Over 60 publishers, including Bulzoni, Fabrizio Serra Editore, Franco Angeli, École Française de Rome, Angelo Longo Editore, Leo S. Olschki, Storia e Letteratura, Vita e Pensiero, already contribute their works to EIO. Making their debut in EIO in 2010 are the publishers EGEA, Laterza, and Città Nuova, to name just a few.
The scope of the contributing publishers ensures coverage in EIO of new or recently published books and journals in such disciplines as History, Philosophy, Linguistics, Comparative Literature, Art, Architecture, Religion, Social Sciences, Economics and Sociology.

Content Growth and Collection Flexibility

Since its creation in 2004, the collection has grown at a steady rate of at least 500 new e-books and 20 new e-journals per year, and the growth rate foreseen for the coming years is even greater. With subscription year 2010, 1500 new e-books and 25 new e-journals are being added to the platform.
With this increase, Casalini libri can now offer greater flexibility of subscription options: libraries may select from a broad range of single- or multi-publisher interdisciplinary collections and subject-based subsets or create their own, personalized Editoria Italiana Online collection from the content available.

2010 Collections    

Access to EIO is available in a range of subscription options, enabling libraries to select or create the collection that meets their own digital content objectives. Libraries may choose from EIO multi-publisher or mono-publisher interdisciplinary collections and subject-based subsets.
