TITLES

Author:

For personal authors, type last name first and then forename, for organizations, type the whole name (or only the first words if these are sufficient to identify it). E.g. 1. Abati, Baldo Angelo 2. Confraternita del SS. Nome di Dio in Cattedrale. 3. Della Barba
When the exact name of the author is unknown, type the terms known and select Lista. E.g. Baldacc*

Title:

Adj (frase iniziale): type a title or part of an exact title, beginning with the first word but omitting initial articles, and/or the name of the author if it precedes the title. E.g. 1 trattato de gli vffici communi tra gli amici superiori et inferiori. Warning: a search by adj (frase iniziale) is much more rapid but it works only if the first words of the title are entered precisely.
And/or: type words or phrases from a title.
E.g. 1. vffici communi amici superiori et inferiori
Arabic numerals must be used. E.g.: capitoli del re Carlo 9.
For transcription problems the letters "i j" and "u v" may be used interchangeably (in converting capitals to lower case the letters "u" and "v" are transcribed as "u" if inside the word, and as "v" if at the beginning of the word). Hence words must be looked for in the various versions possible. E.g. 1. vniuersitas or uniuersitas o universitas 2: auuiso or avviso
