Visualization Friday Forum

In 2016, Duke University Libraries purchased a Multispectral Imaging (MSI) system. MSI is a hardware and software system that combines infrared, ultraviolet, and visible light waves with camera filters in order to reveal text or other object characteristics that are obscured or not visible to the naked eye. Since the purchase, a cross-departmental team of librarians and technologists have researched, explored, and gained experience using the system in order to develop a service for the Duke research community. Join the team as they discuss MSI and how it can be employed to study papyri, manuscripts, 20th century paper and inks and other unique items from Duke University Libraries' collections.
