Updates on EIO and EE

What are EIO and EE? EIO is Editoria Italiana Online, a searchable online Italian scholarly full text journal and e-book resource. EE is Electronic Enlightenment, a full text database containing the intellectual correspondence of the long 18th century. Stanford subscribes to both of these databases; you can gain access from the Databases page. Both of them just released newsletters letting users know how they are expanding in both content and features.

The Electronic Enlightenment newsletter, with information about their expanded biographical database is available here:

And here's the latest on EIO:
"EIO 2011

We are very pleased to bring you an update regarding the 2011 release of Editoria Italiana Online, Casalini libri's fulltext database of ebooks and ejournals in the Humanities and Social Sciences by some of Italy's most prominent academic publishers.

Now with over 90 publishers contributing their content to EIO, again this coming year some 1500 new ebooks and 25 new ejournals will be added to the platform, bringing the total to 6700 ebooks and 195 ejournals available exclusively in EIO. Among the publishers new to EIO in 2011 we are pleased to cite Edizioni ETS, the Gregorian & Biblical Press, Mondadori Education and Alinea.

Another new feature in 2011 regards user authorizations. Those now in place for journal articles will be extended to monograph parts of works (chapters), allowing users to download and save files to a local computer as well as copy/paste.

More information on the EIO collection and subscription packages available for 2011 is available here."
