You can access a list of newly acquired titles for a given topic by searching for a key term in DiscoverE and then selecting "Newly Acquired" under the "Show only" category on the left-hand side of the screen. Select "Date-newest" under the "Sorted by:" category in order to see the most recent publications first. 

Here I searched "Buddh*" to catch any related key term (Buddha, Buddhism, Buddhist, etc.).

Digitized Texts

Pali Text Society digitized editions

From the H-Buddhism listserv 2014-10-13.  In short, the Pali Text Society is pleased to announce the availability of digital editions of the PTS edition of the Pali canon. The files are being made available gradually, text by text, for free download on GRETIL (Göttingen Register of Electronic Texts in Indian Languages):

http://gretil.sub.uni-goettingen.de/

These files are based on the digital text input by the Dhammakaya Foundation, Thailand, 1989-1996 and are made available by the Pali Text Society for scholarly purposes only. In principle they represent a digital edition (without revision or correction) of the printed editions of the complete set of Pali canonical texts published by the PTS. While they have been subject to a process of checking, it should not be assumed that there is no divergence from the printed editions and it is strongly recommended that they are checked against the printed editions before quoting.

While the PTS edition of the canon can make no particular claim to authority or accuracy, its text is the one most widely used and quoted in the scholarly literature published over the last 125 years. These digital texts should therefore be a useful scholarly resource. The files include the page numbers and line breaks of the printed edition.

Best wishes,
