The challenge

The National Central Library of Rome preserves Italy’s publishing heritage for future generations. This bibliographic treasure was previously restricted to a few experts because of the fragility of many historic documents. Digitising the paper and vellum is preserving these documents for the future and making it easy to discover and share Italy’s past.

The solution

Historic literary works are now digitised with the help of an innovative Fujitsu scanning system. The ScanSnap SV600 guarantees intuitive handling and excellent image quality through contact-less scanning, thus even preserving very delicate documents.

The benefits

  • Italy’s publishing heritage is preserved for future generations
  • Economical solution to scan historic documents
  • Broader access to documents through digitisation
  • No risk of damage to literary works due to contact-less scanning
