One of the most attractive possibilities offered to scholars and students by telematics applications is to contact directly some of the largest libraries in the world and perform bibliographic research through fully accessible online catalogues. Also in this case some particular sites present summaries of links to libraries in Italy and abroad. The first four entries, for example, allow to visualize different library resources in Italy and elsewhere; in particular, they consent to contact the Italian OPAC-SBN system and help locate the university library online catalogues.
