How to join Internet Culturale

All Italian public and private libraries and institutions holding  digital resources and applying international digitisation standards – above all the data model and the XML syntax of the MAG schema – can join the Internet Culturale portal.
Institutions joining Internet Culturale take part in the enrichment of the Italian Digital Library together with all other libraries/institutions. The homepage provides a wide space to partner institutions and their collections. Finally , the  joining institutions ensure their own visibility on CulturaItalia, with which Internet Culturale is integrated.

Registration modalities for content suppliers
Libraries/institutions can join with various types of materials: catalogue databases, digital databases, digital collections, 3D, mini-websites, virtual exhibitions, videos, virtual itineraries, multimedia works, etc.
Mini-websites, virtual exhibitions, videos, 3D, etc., can be acquired on the portalCMS or linked from the institution’s website as well.

  • For those who want to realize their own repository and manage their own data
    • Institutions can also request the Mag Teca software, ensuring the autonomous carrying out of functions, hardware adaptationand digital display case management.
The overall costs of the library joining the network depend on the modalities adopted.
