Semantico Limited, a leading provider of services and technology for online publishing, is pleased to announce the launch of a new e-book platform designed and built for its client Brill, starting with 855 e-books in PDF format. This is a key addition to Brill’s online publishing programme, allowing the company to monetise its Humanities and Social Sciences PDF collections while building on and improving its e-book platform.
A notable feature of the new platform is an enhanced user interface, the result of a user-orientated design phase which led to a number of new features. These include special display modes for content that the user is subscribed to, and advanced use of Ajax to make site controls more intuitive.
The website (http://ebooks.brillonline.nl) now carries 855 Brill e-Books published in 2007, 2008 and 2009, on the following subjects:
- Asian Studies
- Biblical Studies, Ancient Near East and Early Christianity
- Classical Studies
- European History and Culture
- Middle East and Islamic Studies
- Religious Studies, Theology and Philosophy
- Social Sciences
Another 200 titles will be added before the end of this year.
