Valorizzare i fondi d’autore

Anna Manfron    Istituzione Biblioteche del Comune di Bologna e Biblioteca dell’Archiginnasio, Italia    



Private libraries and archives constitute an interesting case study for the enhancement of books and documents that are a direct testimony and mirror of the personality that collected, used and produced them. The general public involvement in the narration of the human and intellectual story of an author – starting from good management practices, conservation and cataloging and descriptive treatment, to make the collections openly accessible to the widest possible audience – can be the key to effectively communicate the value of materials that have taken on a special patrimonial vocation. The aim of this paper is also to show how the special collection exhibitions can play a key role in fulfilling obligations to the general public.
