Biblioteca Vaticana - closed for 3 years

Today, looking for some information on the website of the famous Biblioteca Vaticana, I learnt that it will be closed for three (yes, 3) years -- I would say three long years -- "for important renovations". The starting date was July 14, 2007.

Now, for all of you in need of manuscripts from the Biblioteca Vaticana there is one more chance to get the materials -- the Library of St. Louis University holds an important Vatican manuscripts repository gathered together under Knights of Columbus Vatican Film Library.

Oh, I've almost forgot to mentioned that the prices are the same as for the Biblioteca Apostolica copies.
