Aim of the Course
Participants of this intensive course will learn about essential methods for digitizing and disseminating museum collections, such as digital imaging, laser scanning and geographical information systems. They will visit at least one of our partner museums in Munich, gain hands-on experience in these methods, and apply them to a small group project, which is presented at the end of the course. In this way, they not only learn about challenges and opportunities inherent in the digitization of museum collections, but they also gain practical experience.
