SummaryTo comply with the requirements of art-historical research, libraries have to adapt their services to the standards of digital publication formats and digital forms of communication. International collaboration is indispensable to meet these demands. The Kunsthistorische Institut in Florenz is prominently involved in a network of art libraries. Dozens of art libraries from 15 countries have managed to establish a virtual bibliographic database. Furthermore, the network tests innovative methods to visualize semantic and quantitative information in catalogue data.
