Catalogue of Manuscripts



Information The manuscript catalogue is still at the drafting stage and includes complete or partial data taken from inventories, bibliographies, printed catalogues, card indexes, and printed publications, as indicated under the heading Fonte ("source") for each electronic entry.
Wherever possible, complete entries include also a choice of digital images.
The encoding of the descriptive elements conforms to the TEI-MS specifications and uses XML syntax.
The system (data archive, authority index and search engine) has been entirely developed using open-source Java/XML technology.
