The Vatican Apostolic Library holds over 80,000 objects (manuscripts, prints, drawings, plates and incunabula). They are in a process of digitising their collection, having made available 500 manuscripts and 600 incunabula so far through their website.

Through crowdfunding they’re seeking donations of €5 to save a single page in a manuscript, while donations of at least €1,000 will see the backer included on the official supporters list.

The digitization project will made available 3,000 manuscripts by 2018.
