ArtHist.net is an international mailing list for art history which has published, since 2001, about 27,000 announcements concerning calls for papers, jobs, and fellowships as well as conferences, reviews, and digital resources, mostly in German and English, and also in French and Italian. For DVS, Daniel Burckhardt has prepared the data, and Noah Bubenhofer (UZH) has ingested them into a corpus-linguistics pipeline, and Gerold Schneider (UZH) has made first tests. The corpus is geographically biased, but could be counterbalanced by other digital resources from art history (library catalogues, conference programs etc.) and mailing lists from other related disciplines. Cf. Burckhardt 2017 and id./Scott 2017.
The Library contains 340’000 volumes, mainly about the history of Italian art since late antiquity. It’s catalogue offers rich metadata and systematic keywording.
Thanks to a digitization initiative, its collection of 14,600 books about Rome and Naples will be digitized for data mining between mid-2022 and early-2024 and, thus, offer a great amount of visual and textual overlap with the BHMPI Photographic Collection.

Italian Counterculture Collection
The BHMPI has digitized about 30’000 pages of rare literature from Italian counterculture in the 60s and 70s from the Archive of the Echaurren Salaris Foundation which are ready for data mining.
The ongoing critical edition of Heinrich Wöllflin’s Complete Writings has digitized all his publications, elaborates transcriptions of his monographs and of manuscripts by him or his students and thus offers a particularly dense resource about the science of art around 1900.
The BHMPI publishes Giovan Pietro Bellori’s Lives of Italian baroque artists in a German translation. The 13 volumes can be used for data mining and machine translation.
