Pope Nicholas V founded the Vatican Library in the mid-15th century, preserving the heritage of the church and of humanity for more than half a millennia. Today, 82,000 priceless manuscripts as well as coins, drawings and photographs form a fragile collection spanning much of the history and breadth of civilisation. While the Library’s collection is a treasure for all humanity, dissemination and preservation are classic foes.
Digital archiving links the library’s rich history to NTT DATA’s cutting edge IT expertise. Manuscripts are the library’s most important possession, and their preservation is paramount. Our solution perfectly preserves these manuscripts as clear, high-resolution images, enabling instant access to anyone with Internet connectivity through our fast and readily searchable AMLAD™ platform.
We’ve now scanned and logged 618,950 delicate pages from the priceless Vatican Library collection. Faultlessly.
By getting the small things right, we aim to solve problems on a colossal scale.
Your details. Our passion.
