LACONI Tech Trends: 3D Digitization Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 3D Digitization within Libraries Darren Thompson Blue Island Public Library Mgr. IT, Tech & YA Programming [email_address]
  • 2. PC World Article: It's Time for Public Libraries to Get Creative by Phil Shapiro who works at Takoma Park Maryland Library
    • “… Half of a library's operating budget could be generated by the creative output of the people who use that library. Writers, composers, filmmakers, choreographers, artists, inventors, and other creative types could all get their start working on collaborative projects for their own neighborhood library. Established creative talent could donate some of their works to add value to anthologies and other group projects…”
    • “ Half of a library’s operating budget” is a bit of a stretch, but libraries can offer more services and resources to their communities and patrons so both parties win.
  • 3. Why Think about 3D Digitization?
    • Promote spaces within your library
    • Digitize historical structures/spaces
    • Create a historical record of a space before renovation
    • 3D digitization is the trend
  • 4. Google SketchUp
    • Free to start with and easy to use
    • Can place model into Google Earth
    • Google SketchUp Pro costs around $500
    • Google Earth Pro costs around $400
    • Second Life – can’t export models and need individual user accounts
  • 5. Other Benefits…
    • Patrons can use it to learn new skills or just for themselves
    • Partnerships
    • Advanced teen programming
  • 6. Good Resource for Google SketchUp YA Programming: 3D V INCI
  • 7. Example of Benefits: Blue Island Public Library

    • Renovations are about to happen within the Museum
    • Want to create a record of the existing structure
