Oxford University, Vatican libraries to digitize works


The Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford and the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana (BAV) said on Thursday they intended to digitize 1.5 million pages of ancient texts and make them freely available online.

OK, now THAT is cool enough for a Thursday!
