Travel Light with Ebooks

La invención literaria : Garcilaso, Góngora, Cervantes, Quevedo y Gracián / José María Pozuelo Yvancos Boccaccio e lo spettacolo della parola : il Decameron dalla scrittura alla scena : atti delle giornate di studio Boccaccio, un modello per l'Europa, il Decameron dalla scrittura alla scena (Bari, dicembre 2010-marzo 2011) Romain Gary, émile Ajar - Regards Croisés Méditerranée : mare nostrum pour les migrants?

While acquiring and establishing access to ebooks from southern Europe remains a challenge for American research libraries, the Berkeley Library has made some inroads this year with more Spanish books from Digitalia (625 titles to date), more Italian ebooksfrom Torrossa (2112 titles to date), and most recently 252 titles from France's largest publisher L'Harmattan. Hosted on their Harmathèque platform, these books are discoverable through OskiCat just like print books, and less seamlessly through most of the vendor's web sites:

  • For ebooks in Digitalia, do a title search in OskiCat for "Digitalia UCB access" or "Digitalia ebooks UCB access"
  • For ebooks in Torrossa, use "EIO - Italian Studies Basic Collection" or "Olschki E-books and Journals"
  • And for ebooks in L'Harmathèque, try  "Harmathèque eBooks"

Funding for materials in less commonly taught European languages

The Institute of European Studies has created a special fund to support the UC Berkeley Library collection in the less commonly taught European languages (LCTLs). Students, both undergraduate and graduate, lecturers and faculty who wish to use library materials (books, ebooks, graphic novels, dissertations, DVDs, etc.),  in a European LCTL and published in Europe that are currently not available on the Berkeley campus, can fill out the Library Recommendation Form and mention "IES LCTL Support" in the Comments section. IES will then provide funding to the UC Berkeley Library to finance the purchase of these materials. This support only applies to LCTLs that are still today spoken in Western, Northern, and Southern Europe (i.e. all European languages with the exception of German, French, Italian and Spanish); no support will be given for classical or extinct languages nor for Slavic and other Eastern European languages supported by the Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies.

Established in 2010 in Badajoz, Extremadura the independent Spanish publishing house Aristas Martínez declares that it exists for both readers and booksellers, avoiding classification by genres by delving into the boundary between fiction and non-fiction.
