Vatican Apostolic Library uploads 256 digitized manuscripts

MONS. CESARE PASINI 

Prefect, Vatican Apostolic Library (Nov. 24, 2011)

"It will be all of the manuscripts. To be more precise, all of the manuscripts that are conserved within the manuscript deposit in the Library. There are about 80,000.â? 

The project started in late 2011, and employs the use of technology from NASA to digitize the documents. But, it will take years. 

Once finished, the files will use up approximately 4.5 million gigabytes in the Vatican Library's external hard-drive.
