Internet portal Terra, a unit of Spain's Telefonica, has incorporated Brazilian subscription-based digital library Nuvem de Livros and its 11,000 titles into its online services platform, the two companies said Monday.
In addition to news, entertainment and cultural content, Terra will now offer its users the books, videos and interactive content of Nuvem de Livros, a "multi-platform" application that can be read and accessed without the need to download files.
"Adding Nuvem de Livros to the portal strengthens segments that we consider extremely important for Terra, such as culture and education. We're always looking to incorporate products that make a difference," Koiti Inagaki, Terra's head of subscriptions, said in a statement Sunday.
Grupo Gol CEO Jonas Suassuna, creator and developer of the Nuvem de Livros (Cloud of Books) digital library, said the agreement with Terra "complements" an existing deal with Telefonica.
Nuvem de Livros' online platform, developed in collaboration with the Brazilian unit of Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica and located on the Web at www.nuvemdelivros.com.br, allows users to access educational content and literary works without the need to download the material.
Inaugurated more than two years ago, that platform currently offers more than 11,000 titles to more than 1 million subscribers, who can read the content on their computer, tablet or smartphone.
