Bodleian and Vatican to digitze some of their collection of ancient texts

1.5 million texts in the Bodleian Library at the University of Oxford and Vatican Library (In Rome of course!) will be digitized thanks to a 2 million pound grant they received. The materials will be available for free to the pubic and researchers. Materials to be digitized include "Greek manuscripts, 15th Century printed books and Hebrew early printed books and manuscripts." The article does not say when the project will begin or how long it is estimated to take. I wonder if and hope that future plans will see more of the collections digitized and available for free to the public and researchers. What an excellent resource this will be for the public and researchers.  For more read the article  at
