The sessions are as follows:
- 3D Data Acquisition and Dissemination
- 3D Printing and Augmented Reality with Aurasma
- Best Practices for Project Management & Collaboration
Following the three sessions, we are also hosting a Digital Project Showcase where members from the UF community are invited to present their digital projects.

About the Presentation:
“Beyond Trinkets: The Value of 3D in the Library”
In spring 2014, the UF Libraries opened its 3D services to the university and public. This service, funded by student technology fees, expanded from 2 small 3D printers in the science library to now include 4 branch libraries with 10 3D printers, and circulates multiple portable 3D printers and scanners. The library accepted over 1000 3D orders last year and librarians regularly teach workshops to the campus community and public, along with offering specialized consultations regarding 3D scanning and printing.
This presentation will provide an introduction to 3D printing and scanning technology, describe the opportunities and challenges of offering 3D technology in a library, and provide case studies that illustrate the potential of 3D across disciplines.
