Cambridge University Library is pleased to announce an initial one-year subscription to DIGITALIA Hispánica, a database of e-books and e-journals in Spanish with access to some of the most renowned publishers in Spain and Latin America. It holds thousands of e-books and e-journals, including new and backlist titles in a wide range of subjects within the Humanities and the Social Sciences.

A few of the many publishers represented include Anthropos, Biblioteca Nueva, Ediciones Universidad de Salamanca, Ocho y Medio, Iberoamericana/Vervuert, Universidad Nacional de Colombia and Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. DIGITALIA’s collection of electronic journals is also very impressive. Some representative titles include Quimera, Archivos de la Filmoteca, and the collection of historical journals from Spain, featuring El Ruedo Iberico, El Viejo Topo, Ajoblanco, and many others. An average of 15 new publishers is added to the database each year (about 5,000 titles). So watch this space!

Access is available now on and off campus on the Digitalia platform using this URL:

The individual ejournal titles in Digitalia can be searched via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z gateway and from mid-November also via Newton, LibrarySearch and LibrarySearch+.

The individual ebook titles in Digitalia will be able to be searched from early December via LibrarySearch. We will announce on the blog when the ebook records become available in LibrarySearch in early December.

  1. That’s a fantastic resource! I’ve already found a number of texts on it that it will be useful to have access to when I don’t have the physical book with me. Being able to search full text saves a lot of time too. Many thanks for this. Nice blog too!
