14 for 2014: 14 Animated Digital Models from the Virtual Curation Laboratory

by Bernard K. Means, Director

The Virtual Curation Laboratory had a busy year, as some of you may have seen in my last post for 2013. I thought I would start out this year by highlighting 14 objects that we either scanned in the past year, or were finally able to get the raw digital data edited with the tremendous help of staff, interns, and volunteers during the year that just ended. These are separate from the “animated object of the day” being posted over at the Virtual Curation Museum site.
