Bibliotheca Corviniana Digitalis
The Bibliotheca Corviniana Digitalis is a virtual reconstruction of the Biblioteca Corviniana, one of the most renowned libraries of the Renaissance world. The Biblioteca Corviniana was established by Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary and Croatia between 1458 and 1490. Books that once belonged to the collection are now spread out all over Europe. The virtual library currently provides access in digital form to 36 corvinae from the collection of the National Széchényi Library, one of the two Hungarian national libraries. It also provides information on all the other corvinae held by libraries in 14 countries around the world. There is an Hungarian and an Italian version of the site. The Hungarian version is clearly updated more frequently, whereas the Italian version shows many broken links. At present (July 2011) the site is still under development, but the goal is to make an English and a German version of the site available, as well. The corvinae digitization are made with a RGB DIGIBOOK 6000 scanner, with an average resolution of the 300 dpi in JPEG format.
