he activity concerning legal documentation is an area of considerable growth within the Institute, which has always devoted a lot of resources in this field; on this matter consolidated results have been achieved over time, both nationally and internationally.
This activity regards management, updating and distribution of databases of legal interest available both online and on CD-Rom. The Institute is involved in the creation and distribution of different databases, mainly bibliographical, both current and covering historical materials; some databases, while no longer up to date, are nevertheless maintained on-line due to current interest in them.
There are active databases, updated periodically, closed databases no longer updated, and historical databases covering a specific historical period. Finally, ITTIG offers a series of guides to facilitate the retrieval of legal resources available on the net.
