Schedarium of the artists in Rome. Among the Bibliotheca Hertziana’s holdings of archival material are the notes on foreign artists working in Rome compiled by the German cultural historian Friedrich Noack (1858–1930). Largely written in an antiquated shorthand, the card index consists of 18,000 slips of paper. It was digitised in 2006 and indexed by artists’ names. The data are stored in an eXist database; the scans are accessible online.
