The seminar will discuss electronic catalogues of books, rare books and manuscripts and how they have been exploited in digital libraries, both in Italy and in Europe. The Italian Servizio Bibliotecario Nazionale (SBN) and its cataloguing standards will be illustrated, together with Internet Culturale which is an Italian repository of digital collections.
