Module 10 | Digitizing 3D Collections for Museums
Description: The necessity for museums to activate, promote and share their collections in creative and innovative ways has never been greater. Digitizing museum collections makes objects accessible to a broader global audience and can also assist with long-term preservation. Tune in for the Module 10 introductory session to hear how one small museum (with an equally small staff) tackled digitization of its collections in a big way! Learn how the team at the Hutchings Museum Institute determined the ultimate purpose (and use) for 3D digitization and navigated the challenges of scanning collections of all shapes, sizes, textures and fragility with technology that fit the museum’s budget. Join this session to get inspired by a small museum digitization success story!
