The Vatican's Apostolic Library
In January, the New Yorker magazine published an article entitled " GOD'S LIBRARIANS: Letter from Rome" (length abstract). If you have a subscription to the New Yorker (online or hardcopy), you can view the entire article. Given that most people can't see that article, here are linked to related content about the work that the Vatican did. Note that digitization is not specifically discussed, but the work was done to increase access to the materials as well as keep the materials safe.
