Update on Vatican Library Digitalization Project

As of May 5. See here for the update on this great project. Note two things: 1. As is common for anything related to the humanities, they are short of cash. 2. Some of the technology was originally developed by NASA... your tax-dollars at work. They are planning to digitize 80,000 mss. hopefully they will make the reproductions available online as was the case with Assisi.

Link didn't work :(

Digitisation is a much better thing to donate money to than Wikipedia.
