Vatican Library Goes Digital Under New Pope - Yahoo! News (blog)

Vatican Library Goes Digital Under New Pope - Yahoo! News (blog) | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it


Pope Francis isn't the only newcomer to the Vatican. New technology has also found its way inside the ancient institution.

 Cloud computing corporation EMC recently announced that it will soon begin the process of digitalizing the Vatican Apostolic Library.

EMC said it will spearhead the collaborative effort to preserve the 40 million pages of the Vatican Library in an ISO-certifiable digital format. The high-tech makeover of the Vatican library will likely take nine years to complete. The catalogue includes 80,000 historic manuscripts and 8,900 incunabula, or books and pamphlets published before 1501.

The Search Engine We REALLY Want To See Google (or Microsoft) Build

When you sit down and think about it, search engines today have not changed all that dramatically in terms of depth-of-insight compared to their early days. we thought it would be fun to set aside those limitations and think about what online search could be. In doing so, we set aside both the business limitations and those technical limitations we thought would be theoretically solvable in the near to mid-term that currently prevent it from becoming a true knowledge engine.
