Biblioteca gallica

Post by Radek » Sat May 07, 2005 7:38 am

I found bibliotheca Galica is interesting source with many digitalized potocopies of ancient latin text in pdf`s.
http://gallica.bnf.fr

But I have big problem I don't know French.
Can anyone say how to use this source?
Can I download the full text or only page by page?

If you want to download a document, hit 'telecharger'.

Go to the section: "recherche" (~seach). There you can enter "mots du titre" (~words from the title), "auteur" (~author), "sujet" (~subject), "recherche libre" (~free text search).

When you find a title you want to investigate further, click on it. A PDF opens with the first page of the work chosen. If you go back to your browser, you'll find a page with these options

"Notice" (~basic information about the text)
"Pagination" (~an overview of the work's pages, click and PDFs will open)
"Texte seul" (~I'm not sure what that does...)
"Plein écran" (~full screen mode)
"Télécharger" (~download as I. said: "ok" gets you all the pages)
"Réproduire" (~requests for reproduction)

It's a great site - you'll see :D

"Texte seul" gives you the text without the page numbers on the left., as opposed to "pagination".
