Abstract

Over the last decade or so, business history – like many other disciplines – has had to come to terms with far-reaching innovations in scientific knowledge, communication and information, brought about by the arrival and rapid diffusion of the World Wide Web. These changes have had even greater impact in a field like archival science that uses a complex and stratified memory. For this reason, it is extremely important to analyze the current state of Italian IT sources for business history.
