Notes

Abstract: This research project explored the inclusion of 3D scanned items in UNT Libraries’ digital collections. The researcher used a NextEngine HD 3D Scanner on selected materials from UNT Libraries’ Special Collections Department to learn and adapt the 3D scanning and printing process to local resources. The outcomes from the project include an overview of current methods, equipment, uses, and file formats for 3D scanning; a case study discussing UNT Libraries’ digital library infrastructures capacity to host, render, and preserve 3D scanned data and models; and a recommendation in regard to the pursuance of 3D scanning in UNT’s digital collections area.
