Description

This closing chapter provides a detailed description of the goals of the UC multi-campus research initiative At-Risk Cultural Heritage and the Digital Humanities and a comprehensive review of each campus' contribution to the project. The project results constitute the core of this edited book. Among its most notable outcomes, this project successfully leveraged new digital technologies to virtually safeguard some of the world's most at-risk objects and places. This chapter discusses how this was achieved by taking a transdisciplinary approach that engaged students and fostered long-term collaboration among UC campuses and local communities, and national and international research partners. The project's success can be measured by the many organizations that have expressed interest in sharing data and connecting with and acquiring the project's new technologies and applications.
