Wroclaw University Library digitizing rare archival texts

The Wroclaw University Library, founded in 1811, houses unique documents such as medieval manuscripts and old prints, including the works Martin Luther, Cervantes and Shakespeare, as well as rare maps and liturgical texts. The library is using an IBM solution consisting of System x servers and Storage to digitally preserve 800,000 pages of these rare documents and make them available online for the first time.
