Digital Libraries Usher In Age Of Discovery

If you're interested in rare book and manuscript digitization, then you must read the fantastic article from last Friday's Wall Street Journal, called The Next Age of Discovery. It's all about the intersection of technology, history, scholarship and religion. The article highlights the work of Benedictine monk, Father Columba Stewart, who's leading the charge to preserve religious historical manuscripts through digitization. He "cites his monastic order's long tradition of copying texts to ensure their survival as inspiration."
