Bibliotheca Palatina – Digital

http://digi.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/en/bpd/index.html

A Virtual Reconstruction of the Former Crown Jewel of Germany’s Libraries

One of the consequences of the Thirty Years’ War was that the most important collection of books in the 17th century Holy Roman Empire, the Bibliotheca Palatina, was divided between two principal locations: Heidelberg and the Vatican. Since 2001, Heidelberg University Library has been working on several projects that aim to digitize parts of this great collection, the final goal being a complete virtual reconstruction of the ‘mother of all libraries’

New Directory of Art Historians

http://www.arthistorians.info/

A thirty-year-old resource emerged today as a modern reference tool for art history. The Dictionary of Art Historians, http://www.arthistorians.info/, announced a new interface, data structure, and user options, the product of a year-long redesign. The original tool, a website since 1996, was developed privately by Lee Sorensen, the art and visual studies librarian at Duke University. Duke’s Wired! Lab for digital art history & visual culture sponsored the project beginning in 2016. The new DAH offers searchable data on over 2400 art historians, museum directors, and art-writers of western art from all time periods.
