3D Scanning and Museum Access

3D Scanning and Museum Access

I’ve posted an online adaptation of my recent presentation to the California Association of Museum’s 2015 conference panel on access.

I advocate that museums begin freely publishing the many archival-quality 3D scans they’ve been accumulating for over a decade, but have not been sharing. I list examples of of the world’s cultural heritage that have already been digitized, but are currently locked up inside museums’ and universities’ research labs.
