Vatican library moves into the 21st century

Vatican library moves into the 21st century

The Vatican library has begun mass digitising 82,000 historic manuscripts to make them available online.
As part of the project, EMC has offered 2.8 petabytes of storage — enough to store about 40 million pages of digitlised manuscripts — to help the Vatican library digitise its collection, which includes documents like the 42 line Latin Bible of Gutenberg, the first book printed with movable type dating between 1451 and 1455.
