Partner libraries

The Census of sixteenth-century Italian editions is the result of a partnership involving 1,600 libraries. The project has been possible thanks to the fundamental contribution of Italian libraries belonging to different institutions, such as State libraries, libraries of local authorities, university libraries, libraries of cultural institutes, of ecclesiastical institutions and private libraries. The Census also surveyed the holdings of some extra-territorial libraries, including the Vatican Library and the Biblioteca di Stato e Beni Librari of San Marino.

With the inclusion of the British Library in 2017, the Census opened up for the first time to the participation of foreign institutions.
