Vatican Library makes 15,000 manuscripts available online for free

It was just announced on 30 May 2018: "Vatican Library makes 15,000 manuscripts available online for free" - Read more about the availability HERE. According to that announcement:
Once the tedious process of scanning all the individual pages of each manuscript is complete, the works are compiled and uploaded to their dedicated DigiVatLib website, where they can be viewed by the public. Currently they have about 15,000 of their collection uploaded and ready to view. If they keep pace at 3,000 uploads per year, they should have the whole library of 80,000 manuscripts scanned by 2041.
You can check out what is available at the DigiVatLab site now. Browse or search to see what they have. Here's what Codex Vaticanus (= Bibl. Vat., Vat. gr. 1209) looks like. The view is of Genesis 1.

Another useful resource!
