NNLM Region 5 - Technology Improvement - Y1

The Oregon Health & Science University’s OHSU Library will make 3-D scanning technology more available to communities through Equipment Lending and Special Collections Outreach.  Experience with creating and manipulating 3-D representations of medical and scientific objects is important to the spatial thinking and creativity of academic, research and community learners served by the OHSU Library.  Creating an opportunity to experiment with this technology can provide a background that learners can build on for more advanced scientific training or inspire students to study technology. Our dual approach includes Library-led events and ways to expose the public to the tools themselves and libraries as a source of technological and other creative tools and enables others at OHSU involved in science education for K-12 learners to use the scanners in their own outreach.
