Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the last twenty years there has been a multiplication of the more or less systematic detection projects of the signs of provenance deposited on old books. The Autonomous Province of Trento has played a pioneering role, with the major cataloging projects of the ancient funds of the territory, which have produced important catalogs, especially those of the series "Historical and artistic heritage of Trentino" (the so-called "red catalogs" "), Which present a systematic survey and indexing of ancient origins. In recent years, thanks to the pervasive development of information technologies, alongside the more traditional paper cataloging tools, databases have made available free of charge these precious data online, indispensable to reconstruct the ancient book collections, but also the circulation of the book , the history of collecting, the book market. However, some problems should not be hidden, first of all the diversity of the surveys and the not always obvious communicability between the various instruments. On the other hand, however, there are also those who would like to believe that it is sufficient to build ever more advanced IT mechanisms to effortlessly rebuild the ancient libraries. Experience has shown that things, fortunately, are not always so obvious.
