Title : Heritage Through the Looking Glass: Developing an Infrastructure for 3D Scholarship

Abstract : Despite the long tradition of 3D (re)construction in cultural heritage – be it computer graphic (re)construction or digitisation, and the development of several best practice charters and guidelines, 3D scholarship still lacks a framework that will allow its sustainable publication and preservation, and at the same time its (re)use as a research tool. Building on the concept of 3D Scholarly Editions currently being developed in the context of the PURE3D project, which develops a research infrastructure for 3D scholarship, this presentation will discuss the theoretical and methodological premises that need to be considered when developing a framework for 3D, as well as the challenges that the creation of a 3D infrastructures can pose.
