of the Death of Calvin
Principles of digital publishing:
• These texts result from exact conversion of the paper version
• The page numbers of the paper version have been preserved in order to allow an
identical citation. They appear in the right margin of the text in the form {p. aaa}.
• The cutting out of the preliminary pages was reviewed and references for the digital
version were added.
• References to the original publications are given between square brackets [ ].
his portal presents
all the texts by
or about John
Calvin which have been
published by the Librairie
Droz from 1960 to 2012,

Technical specifcations
Droz’s online portals meet the following standards.
• Open URL: This is a specification for representing a bibliographical citation in the form of a
URL. It permits communication of precise references (to the page) between different systems on
the internet. Open URL enables researchers to automatically communicate references to other
• OAI-PMH Depot: OAI-PMH is a protocol permitting exchange of free document notices. It is
implemented by all the large libraries and research institutions.
• UNIMARC: Every resource available on Droz’s online portal presents a UNIMARC notice for
library cataloging.
• COUNTER: The COUNTER norm is promoted by subscribers to electronic publications, notably
libraries, in order to measure the usage of digital resources by their members.
The following COUNTER reports (Book Reports) will be available for each subscriber:
BR 1: books consulted per month,
BR 2: sections consulted per book and per month,
BR 5: searches and sessions per title and per month,
BR 6: total searches and sessions per collection and per month.
To obtain these reports: esubscriptions@droz.org
• Identity federation of the Shibboleth type:
Shibboleth is an IT protocol which divides up the certification of a user between the provider
of identity (for example, a university) and the provider of the resource (the publisher). It thus
standardizes distant access and facilitates itineraries through the documents.
• TEIpot
The Calvin portal of the Librairie Droz uses the free software TEIpot developed by Algone :

• The Librairie Droz’s Calvin portal will be permanently hosted by the secure server of the City of
Geneva and of the Library of Geneva (BGE), which are partners in this project.
