Title : Digital repository of the University of Zaragoza

Description :
The digital repository, Zaguan, was created in 2008 by the University of Zaragoza (Spain) as a means to offer electronic versions of rare manuscripts and old books from the early modern period to the nineteenth century held physically at the university. However, the project has exceeded these goals, as now it also offers a large number of very recent publications and ebooks in all areas within the humanities; social sciences; law; and architecture/design. Resources available are mostly in Spanish and English, although old materials may be in Latin. The collection of rare books and manuscripts also offers sections on: printings from the 16th to the 19th centuries; and a historical archive. Additionally, the site has made available the full-text content of PhD theses and research articles. Users may search for documents in all sections of the repository (a search guide is provided), but browsing options are somehow limited; there is a section of resources for English studies, but it is no possible to browse for resources within other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
