20200127 Parthenon Horse Camera Angles, Cosmo Wenman

In my 2015 presentation to the California Association of Museums’ conference panel on access, I advocated 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 also clarify the difference between museums welcoming amateur scanners (that is, allowing photography in their galleries) and museums publishing their own high-quality scans. And 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.
