3) ILLUSTRATION DATABASE FOR THE MEDITERRANEAN ARCHITECTURE AND TOWNS
15,768 illustrations of the ancient Mediterranean architecture which we have in our library have been registered in the lazer disk image filing system (RIFILE 6400 RICOH). All the illustrations have keywords for identification, as name of the town and modern name of the country it belongs to, and name of the building. This system makes it possible to retrieve the illustrations quickly and easily which we need for the research.
