SLIS partnership to bring 3D image center to McKissick Museum

The USC School of Library and Information Science has partnered with Arius3D to open a 3D Image center at the McKissick Museum.

The Center will produce scientific quality, full color, three-dimensional models of museum and research collections.

The Mckissick Museum specializes in material culture, natural science, decorative and fine art. The resulting 3D image models will be used within the museum and university to enhance learning, creativity and research on a full range of topics.

Arius3D and University of South Carolina's School of Library and Information Science will serve the 3D models through a commercial Image Library. In addition to the School, the Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) at the university will serve as a research partner, offering CDH faculty fellows opportunities to participate in the project.

Dr. Samantha Hastings, Director and Professor, School of Library & Information Science, College of Mass Communications and Information Studies at the University of South Carolina, said, "The Arius3D technology changes the way our cultural heritage objects can be documented and visualized. This collaboration marks a new adventure, bringing cultural heritage objects to people in digital formats, beyond the traditional walls of an exhibit. It is a true breakthrough technology, and we are very excited by the many potential applications in the library, museum and education fields."

Arius3D's unique approach ensures access to the world's most valuable collections, containing objects of commercial, cultural, educational and conservation significance. Expanding their access to rare and high value artesian objects will allow Arius3D to build the world's first 3D image model library and to begin to create a world market for this new technology.
