Brill Debuts Primary Sources Platform
Brill introduced BrillOnline Primary Sources, a platform consisting of 70-plus thematic collections of global primary source materials such as rare books and documents.
The platform covers research areas in the humanities and social sciences, with subjects ranging from art and architecture to Slavic and Eurasian studies. There are more than 6 million high-resolution document scans, research data, models, and images available for searching.
Brill partnered with Semantico to build the platform using Scolaris, an integrated content platform that manages journals and other publications, promotes discoverability, and offers taxonomy support for faceted search. Users can view BrillOnline Primary Sources materials using the Scolaris Reader.
Brill’s primary sources collections “are designed with discoverability and user experience at the forefront. Using the latest technologies like Scolaris, means that search results are delivered at lightning speed in a logical and intuitive way giving customers the information they need quickly and accurately,” says Perry Moree, CFO and VP of finance and operations at Brill.
