Description

In this text Clough uses the example of the Smithsonian museum to ask and then answer the question, "How can we prepare ourselves to reach the generation of digital natives who bring a huge appetite-and aptitude-for the digital world?" His text discusses how the digital archiving of 2D materials for the Library of Congress and the National Archives have certainly paved the way for future digital archiving but how there are greater challenges for the museum and places attempting to put 3D objects into 2D Internet access. He explores how the impact of the digital world affects libraries and museums, specifically the Smithsonian. Clough emphasizes and attempts to provide answers for the difficulties of creating a digital world, such as making 3D objects 2D for online access and interaction.
