- Primary sources: Manuscripts
From its beginnings, the PhiloBiblon databases have been continually revised with the help of a large number of interested scholars. This page is intended to make it easier for you to send us descriptions of manuscripts, printed texts, or works that we have not yet been able to describe or to correct or supplement existing descriptions.
Here you will find a set of forms that help you to contribute new data and help us to enter it into the database correctly. All such contributions will be given due credit in the database records themselves as well as in the acknowledgments on our Home Page.
The procedure in all cases is the same: Click to download the appropriate Word or interactive PDF form to your computer and fill it out, save it, and e-mail it back as an attachment to the person in charge of the appropriate bibliography (BETA, BITAGAP, BITECA). You can fill it out completely or partially: Incomplete information is better than no information. It is not necessary to return the filled-in form. You may cut and paste the added information directly into an e-mail message if that is easier.
In some cases it may be necessary to print the form, fill it out manually, and then scan it in order to send it as an email attachment.
In addition to the forms, we have also added Notas explicativas. Initially all these Notas are in Spanish. Over time all these materials will be translated into English, Catalan, Galician, and Portuguese.
