Share this on social media:

Paris-based content aggregator Numérique Premium (a subsidiary of Nouveau Monde editions) has announced a partnership with Publishing Technology to provide a custom-built site for its ebook platform, Numérique Premium.

The platform serves as the definitive digital library of essential classics, monographs and reference works in History and Social Sciences for the worldwide academic community.

The ebook specialist’s new online hub, to be developed on Publishing Technology’s pub2web platform, will be home to all currently available content, which, by the end of the 2013, will total more than 2,000 titles within 14 disciplines from 25 publishers. Histoire Premium will boast agile technology allowing institutions to bundle ebooks into bespoke compilations on demand. The site will function fully in French and English.

The revamped Histoire Premium site will offer its academic research community an improved, user-friendly online experience with advanced options for individual publisher and collection pages. The site will also provide superior and specialised search, browse, faceting and filtering options.

Further benefits include:

  • Easy upload options, so the site can be updated with new publishers and titles in real time;
  • Preview features so users can make well-informed decisions prior to the downloading of ebooks;
  • Citation service management including BibTEX, EndNote and RefWorks;
  • Statistical expertise and integrated analytics services; and
  • Improved discoverability via improved site navigation and SEO.

Yannick Dehée, president, Numérique Premium, commented: 'We are excited to partner with Publishing Technology on a custom site for our unique collection. Publishing Technology’s vast publishing and library experience, along with pub2web’s explicitly designed features to increase visibility and usability for libraries, made the company an ideal partner for our ebook platform.

'We welcome the advanced options to personalise every aspect of the site for both new and existing customers. The redevelopment of Histoire Premium is crucial to the success of our ongoing digital strategy.'
