[MCN-L] 3D Scanner and Printer

2014-08-14 Thread Haitham Eid
Hi fellows,


I am writing a grant to buy 3D scanner and printer and wondering if anyone here 
in the list has an advice on what brand or model I should consider. We plan to 
use the scanner to scan a valuable African art collection owned by the 
university and also offer the service to different museums in the region. We 
are interested in user friendly and fast equipment with high quality. Any 
inputs would be greatly appreciated.


Best,

Haitham

[MCN-L] New physical interactive - Eliana Rachel Sully Cohen

2014-08-14 Thread Perian
Hi everyone:

On July 7th, following 40 weeks +42 hours of preparation and labor, I 
released a new physical interactive, which we've named Eliana. Eliana 
was originally 8lbs, 5 oz and 19.5 long, but, being interactive and now 
5 weeks old, her specs have since changed significantly. She also has an 
awful lot of hair, and we're not sure which programmer is responsible 
for that. Since it's a feature, and not currently a bug, we're calling 
the hair a success.

I know many of you have been subjected to my snarky updates and photos 
on ye olde Facebook, but since I have so many friends and colleagues in 
the musetech and registrar communities, I wanted to let the rest of you 
know about my latest project.

Cheers,

~Peria

[MCN-L] Specialist DAMS features for GLAM institutions?

2014-08-14 Thread Perian
A question for those of you who've implemented a digital asset 
management system at your institution or elsewhere...

I'm trying to find or generate a list of digital asset management 
features that are specific to museums, libraries, and archives. All DAMS 
deliver a pretty core set of functions, but I'd like to know how you're 
extending these software packages to suit the needs of cultural 
institutions. These features might include internal and external uses 
and reflect either stand-alone or integrated installations.

Please feel free to reply to me offlist. Thanks,

~P
