A revamped website for the Vatican Apostolic Library brings modern technology to the study of historic manuscripts.
The new website, with improved search functions and easier access to digital reproductions of documents, went live in mid-July.
"We are the pope's librarians because the library is his and has been open by his desire for many centuries," Msgr. Cesare Pasini, library prefect, told Vatican News. "So we want to be truly at the service of our visitors with a modern and current tool that immediately provides what one is looking for."
He noted that "graphics evolve quickly in this type of digital communication and therefore we have long been aware that something fresher, more agile and more intuitive was needed."
