Antiquarian Books

image d'aperçu

This add-on module manages antiquarian books. It is destined to private people and to institutions (libraries, museums…).

  • When cataloguing an antiquarian book, describe its specificities : publisher, printer, bookbinder, previous owners, possibly contributors who helped to buy the book, link it to other titles dealing with this book…
  • Most of these information are saved in a controlled index, so as to guarantee the data coherence
  • Easily find your antiquarian books with several criteria (for instance all books published by a particular publisher, all parchments, the books with a binding from the XVIth century, the books printed in a given town…)
  • If you have the Loan management module, you get the list of researchers who have borrowed the book or the institutions that have exhibited it.

The module has been developed for the Martin Bodmer Foundation in Geneva. This foundation is worldwide famous for its library owning thousands of antiquarian books, incunables, manuscripts, papyruses…





When cataloguing an antiquarian book, enter additional information about your copy : publisher, printer, bookbinder, material (paper, parchment, papyrus…), binding type, list of previous owners, link with other titles dealing with your book…

Data entry is controlled by the system in a majority of fields: possible values are displayed as pop-up menus in order to keep the data clean.
