Project Title

Investigations into the Third Dimension: 3D Scanning in UNT Libraries Digital Collections

Project Description

As 3D scanning’s popularity has increased over the past few years, its various uses span academic, government, and many other settings. This project’s goal was to determine the usefulness of 3D scanners in the setting of UNT Libraries, and to investigate whether the Libraries should continue to pursue 3D scanning, and if so, to give undergraduate students hands-on experience with the necessary equipment.
