Preserving old manuscripts

Post by sdati » 30 Jan 2010, 10:24

Just listened to an interesting podcast about digitization of very old manuscripts - some interesting thoughts on reasons for digitizing rare books and documents... and why having portable, easy-to-use book scanners is a good thing: http://speakingoffaith.publicradio.org/ ... ing-words/
