As one of the oldest publishers in the Humanities, Brill has served research communities since its foundation in 1683. We strongly believe that the Humanities, Social Sciences and International Law are areas of scholarship vital for addressing today’s global challenges. To make our rich content available online, we are dedicated to digitizing our backlist book program.
With support from the Dutch National Library, Leiden University Library, and the Peace Palace Library in sourcing some titles, we are now adding a large set of Brill titles in digital format:
Brill Book Archive Part 1
The Brill Book Archive Part 1 includes 3,888 book titles published between 2000 and 2006, across disciplines such as Asian Studies, Biblical Studies, Classical Studies, History, Language & Linguistics, Literature and Cultural Studies, Middle East and Islamic Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Theology, International Law, Social Sciences, and Biology.
In addition to our existing online book series, another 43 Brill flagship book series will be available in digital format, back to Volume 1. These digitized book series contain 4,800 titles. Please note that there is an overlap between titles in the Brill Book Archive Part 1 and titles published between 2000 and 2006 in the digitized book series.
The Brill Book Archive Part 1 is available as one collection or as subject collections. All titles are DRM-free and also available from our Evidence Based Acquisition (EBA) and E-Book Select programs, as well as through our E-Book Vendors.
