ONLINE CATALOGUE (OPAC)

It contains descriptions of the books catalogueed from 1961 on. The catalogue simultaneously searches the titles of all the libraries that are part of the Polo Bolognese SBN. In order to limit the search to the collections of the Archiginnasio, one may filter this search.

HISTORICAL CATALOGUE ("FRATI-SORBELLI")

Both a card catalogue and online. The "Frati - Sorbelli" catalogue contains descriptions of printed works (including periodicals) acquired or catalogueed in and before 1960. It is divided in four sections: by author, by topic, by biographical subject, by geographical subject.
Please note: many antique books that have been acquired starting from 1961 are described in the Library's more recent catalogues.
The card catalogue is located in the room adjacent to the Main Reading Room.
