• Japanese firm digitize rare Vatican library manuscripts


    VATICAN CITY: Ancient manuscripts in the Vatican library penned from East Asia to the Pre-Colombian Americas will be digitized by a Japanese company as part of a global project to make the collection available for free viewing by the public. Japan’s NTT DATA will digitize 3,000 historical works and put them online over a four-year period in an initiative costing 18 million euros ($22.6 million), the company said at a press conference in the Vatican on Thursday (Friday in Manila).
