Based on the 14,596 references detailed  in L. García y García’s landmark publication, Nova Bibliotheca Pompeiana, the bibliographic database is designed as an  exhaustive database of all works related to Pompeii. Although the Nova  Bibliotheca Pompeiana is the core of the database, works produced  after 1998 when theNova Bibliotheca Pompeianawas published will also be incorporated.

Currently, the database is incomplete. There are approximately 7200 citations available, with authors at the beginning of the alphabet receiving a disproportionate level of completion. New citation batches are regularly uploaded.
