Digital Media Tools

I was a half-hour late, but still managed to catch the tail end of the DCF (Digital Conversion Facility) Large-Format Scanner Demo. I asked question about whether it's possible to print out facsimile copies. Derek Merleaux said no, but suggested that Digital Media Center for Arts (DMCA) could probably do it for less than commercial reprographics shop. Speaking of the DMCA, it occurs to me that they may offer workshops relevant to digital libraries.

Also note today's announcement about Google's 3D modeling program: SketchUp, a 3D modeling program. Phil Shapiro suggests, "this might be an excellent tool for youth and adults to describe the ideal library they would like to use. what shape would this library be in? and what services would be offered in the different rooms of the library?"
