Laboratório de Digitalização de Obras Raras



Currently we live in a time of change and technological advancement which permits the migration from the printed book to the digital medias, thus making it possible at the same time the preservation of the information and the access to it. With this thought the Rare Publications Digitalization Laboratory arises to implement this concept of preservation and access to this valuable collection of the Rare Publications Section of the Biomedical Science Library at Oswaldo Cruz Foundation. This online availability provides the user with easy consultation in different portable devices, time flexibility and more interactive access through navigation resources if we compare it to the traditional visit to a library.

Thinking about new ways of preservation and access to the previously acquired knowledge is as important as the production of new knowledge.
