"Classics" CD-ROMs are out of date...

Our first multimedia project "Classics of Croatian Literature" has been rendered obsolete. We are no longer selling these products... And CD-ROMs as a medium are steadily vanishing to history.
In collaboration with Croatian Ministry of education, science and sport and Croatian Academic and Research Network (CARNet) we are working on the project eLektire (http://lektire.skole.hr), and all of the content from the three CDs, plus many, many more, including numerous Croatian translations of world's literature classics, are now available to Croatian eucational community - free of charge.




However, we will keep this page for, well, sentimental reasons... As far as we know, the "Classics of Croatian Literature" are and will remain the best selling Croatian CD-ROMs of all times!




CD-ROMs "Classics of Croatian Literature"

The first thing we ever did - on three CD-ROMs we published electronic versions of texts of more than 200 works from the most famous Croatian literature classics, from Marulić to Krleža! In short, more than 30.000 pages of books!

The CDs proved to be very useful and they were (and still are!) the national bestsellers in Croatia. They are popular tool that many people use at schools, libraries, for research purposes etc.

The main advantage of this kind of CD-ROMs is the price - all three CDs together cost same as an average book on Croatian market, and for the price you get the valuable collection of literary works.




So far we have published:
