The Vatican Library launched this project withcollaboration with technology service provider NTT DATA. In particular, its digital archiving solution AMLAD will be used. It will make it possible to preserve the collection copies of the library as an important part of human history, quickly find the necessary documents and make digitized content more accessible to the whole world.
The library collection includes 1.6 million printedbooks, 80,000 essays, 300,000 coins and medals, and 150,000 prints and drawings. In the form of non-fungible tokens (NFT), high-resolution photographs of 15 cultural heritage sites of the library will be presented. The images will be accompanied by explanatory notes.
AMLAD is an advancedmetadata library and digital archive for museums and libraries. With this solution, you can perform 3D scanning, digital restoration and manage metadata, which will allow you to accurately represent cultural objects in digital form. In the future, the AMLAD solution will be available to other museums and libraries.
