The Vatican Library, one of the worlds largest, preserves a rich collection covering many fields of human knowledge (literature, history, art, law, astronomy, mathematics, natural sciences, medicine, liturgy, patristics...). Here are some numbers to give an idea of its size: 80,000 manuscripts and around 100,000 archival units; over 8,600 incunabula; tens of thousands of sixteenth-century editions and even more seventeenth-century ones; 1,600,000 printed books; 300,000 coins and medals; 150,000 prints, drawings and engravings; and over 150,000 photographs.
The tasks of ensuring the preservation of such a collection; of putting collection at the disposal of scholars, both in the reading rooms and in the form of reproductions; and of providing adequate services to a large and specialized readership, all depend on constant attention to necessary modifications, consolidations, enlargements and acquisitions. Accomplishing all this requires considerable resources.
