shared digitization infrastructure
Can we develop digitization workflows that allow us to share equipment, cataloging expertise, etc?
Shared cataloging efforts for digitization is currently being done successfully in a number of areas. Equipment is another story i would rather focus on developing agreed upon standards for scanning resolutions, a shared repository and tool development. As for shared equipment, I'd wonder if it is needed unless there are highly specialized realia (e.g. Polynomial Texture Maps)?
