About the Bassi-Veratti Collection
The online Bassi-Veratti Collection brings historical primary source materials to scholars and students around the world. It consists of an online interface offering access to the digitized versions of all of the materials of the Bassi-Veratti Collection at the Archiginnasio in Bologna. Access is via a detailed archival inventory, or finding aid. This inventory has been tagged so that researchers can search using keywords and index terms. Because the inventory’s contents are linked to the corresponding digital images, scholars can easily navigate from the descriptions of the materials to the digital facsimiles.
It is important to note that this online archive contains only the materials found in the Bassi Veratti Collection in the Archiginnasio. Additional materials on Laura Bassi and her world can be found in other libraries and archives in Bologna and elsewhere, including important correspondence in the Archiginnasio's "Collezione degli autografi".
