Bibliographies sur l'antiquité

 [First posted in AWOL 3 January 2010, updated 31 March 2015]

Bibliographies sur l'antiquité
« Certaines bibliothèques offrent parfois d'agréables surprises. Ainsi à l'Université de Lille 3, l'utilisateur n'a pas seulement accès au catalogue des bibliothèques, mais également - c'est le cas pour celle des Sciences de l'Antiquité - des bibliographies thématiques spécialisées établies à partir des ressources de la bibliothèque. »

UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws

UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws
In 2003, UNESCO devised an international solution to combat the illicit traffic of cultural property: the UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws.
By compiling on the Internet the national laws of its Member States, UNESCO offers all stakeholders involved (Governments, customs officials, art dealers, organizations, lawyers, buyers and so forth) a complete and easily accessible source of information. In the event of a legal question about the origin of an object (which may have been stolen, pillaged, or illegally exported, imported or acquired), it is useful to have rapid access to the relevant national laws.
The UNESCO Database of National Cultural Heritage Laws allows the following to be consulted:
  • national laws currently in force related to the protection of the cultural heritage in general;
  • import/export certificates for cultural property (available on request);
  • official or unofficial translations of national laws and certificates;
  • contact details for the national authorities responsible for the protection of the cultural heritage;
  • addresses of the official national websites dedicated to the protection of the cultural heritage.
The database offers access to national legislation relating to the cultural heritage in general, in other words the laws on the following main categories of heritage:
  • cultural heritage:
    -tangible cultural heritage:
    ->immovable cultural heritage (monuments, archaeological sites, etc.)
    ->movable cultural heritage (paintings, coins, archaeological objects, etc.)
    ->underwater cultural heritage (shipwrecks, underwater cities, etc.
-intangible cultural heritage (oral traditions, performing arts, rituals, etc.)
  • natural heritage (natural sites, physical, biological or geological formations, etc.).
For more information, please see the list of international normative instruments for the protection of the cultural heritage (conventions, agreements, charters, codes, declarations, action plans, protocols, recommendations, etc.).

Pede certo: metrica latina digitale

Pede certo: metrica latina digitale
Pede certo è uno strumento per l’analisi automatica dei versi latini, messo a punto dall’Università di Udine nell’ambito del progetto FIRB Traditio patrum. La sua applicazione all’archivio digitale Musisque Deoque — che comprende i testi della poesia latina dalle origini al VII secolo d.C. — ha consentito la scansione dei circa 244.000 versi dattilici in esso contenuti.
In questo sito un motore di ricerca appositamente sviluppato si avvale dei risultati dell’analisi per interrogare il corpus su base metrica, secondo molteplici approcci.
Nella pagina Scansioni libere è disponibile inoltre un dimostrativo semplificato, ma immediatamente usabile, dello strumento con cui è stata eseguita la scansione.
