    • what’s the use of collecting if no one knows …
    • what’ s the use of taking care of it if you do not share

    • Montesquieu
    • July 19th 2012 Catherine Volpilhac-Auger Directeur de l'édition des OEuvres complètes de Montesquieu
    • je me suis aperçue que vous possédiez son exemplaire de Conring, de habitus corporum germanicorum [?], qui a été numérisé. 900000047166
    • I suppose this one has escaped from La Brède before the 20th century (no mark such as "Bibliotheca bredensis" stamped on it - except perhaps on the back of the title page? it is a bit difficult to see it clearly, but it doesn't really matter).
    • UB Gent can be proud of it: this copy of Conring is the only book of Montesquieu's library in Château de La Brède (more than 3300 items) which has ever been digitalized... Hard to believe, but it's true.
    • Vondel
    • mission

    • why did we join “the” european library ?
    • It is good to be even more visible It is good to have a network It is good to have an efficient aggregation infrastructure
