The contribution intends to offer an overview of the Project of an Integrated research system and general catalogue of resources described in the most important databases managed by ICCU. In the new informative model, the data present in the SBN Index, in the digital library of Internet culturale and the specialized databases, such as Manus on line for manuscripts and EDIT16 for 16th century editions, will be accessible starting from a unique interface that will provide to the public a new browsing experience between enriched catalogue records and digital resources, even of different nature than the bibliographic one.Speech language: Italian
