The Vatican digitizes manuscripts


"One of the oldest libraries on the planet is digitizing its archive of ancient manuscripts — and they’re all available to view free of charge...
Over the course of a few years, with the assistance of Japanese company NTT DATA, the library has catalogued nearly 4,500 manuscripts online — and it hopes to reach the 15,000 mark within the next four years."
