Avogadro Digital Library

Portrait of Amedeo AvogadroOn the occasion of the conference dedicated to Amedeo Avogadro and the scientific culture of the first half of the 19th century (held in Turin and Vercelli on June 20-21, 2006), l’Accademia delle Scienze of Turin and the Institute and Museum of the History of Science of Florence have initiated a project aimed at the providing online consultation of the printed works and manuscripts of the noted Piedmontese scientist.

Access to the digital collection is available via a structured list or by searching the library's OPAC. Digital acquisition of the documents is carried out at 400 DPI 8-bit (TIFF, jpeg2000 or PNG ) greyscale. For online consultation, the resolution is 150 DPI jpeg 80% (enlargements max 600 pixels, jpeg 80%).

For input of the metadata, which allow consultation of texts through a structured index, the MAG format has been utilized.

The Avogadro Digital Library is edited by E. Borgi, S. Casati and M. Ciardi.
