In this space, a new editorial collection of CITRU is made known: it consists of e-books with the purpose of expanding the dissemination of researches and gatherings that take place at the center, as well as promoting their reading in the virtual space and optimizing communication with the users, taking advantage of the tools used. This way we join the development of digitalization processes and electronic editing which are carried out at INBA’s research centers and which each day become more important in Mexico and in the world.

Online searches

The great variety of material which had been kept unpublished because of its characteristics and dimensions can now be brought to light in these online publications by CITRU.

Our formats and contents add up progressively more to a large amount of images and texts, among other multimedia materials, which add invaluable information to our research. These materials far exceed the limits of the printed book, as well as the CD-ROM hardware used by CITRU in its digital libraries. Likewise, the limited print run of our publications had kept us from reaching different sectors of the population.

For these reasons and with the aim of thoroughly spreading the work we have produced, we restructured our editions by giving them a new boost through the internet, advances and updates of which allow an unlimited scope, instant, permanent, and with constant feedback that will contribute to continuously renovating the contents.
