Working meeting of the Digital Cicognara Library charter partners. Observers are welcome. The DCL is an international initiative to recreate in digital form the remarkable private book collection of Count Leopoldo Cicognara (1767-1834). Held by the Vatican since 1824 and enumerated in a famous 1821 Catalogo ragionato, the Fondo Cicognara contains some five thousand early imprints that comprise the foundational literature of art and archaeology. When complete, the DCL will consist of the text of the Catalogo  integrated with sophisticated digital editions of every title in the corpus, including black-and-white facsimiles of the original volumes in the Vatican; one or more high-resolution, color facsimiles of unique copies from partner libraries; thorough bibliographic information; and searchable, full-text transcriptions of the books.
