Electronic library of historical documents related to European seismicity prior to 1945

Objective

To develop a standard methodology in researching, filing,
storing, historical seismological sources and to create a
European Electronic Library using advanced electronic facilities
and programmes; to apply the methodology in collection of
informations and electronic copy of documents related to main
seismic events in Europe before 1945 and of instrumental
bulletins in the period 1900-1964.


Historical and bibliographical standard guidelines will be
developed, to be adopted during both source filing, and
realisation of Data Base structure and related informations
handling tools.

All national and other XXth century parametric catalogues as well
as descriptive catalogues will be analyzed in order to organise
the identification and collection of historical and scientific
monograph sources.

All collected data and images will be transferred in the Main
Data Base System, verifying the consistency of filed data; CD-ROM
containing source images and computer software, able to manage
data by remote PC stations, will be realised and diffused, for
the benefit of all interested users.

This Data Base and Data Bank, together with computer handling
programmes and tools, will provide a solid collection of
seismological informations to be diffused in Europe.
