Rapid Capture Pilot Project



Smithsonian Secretary G. Wayne Clough dropped by the Freer|Sackler this week to check out the progress of the Rapid Capture Pilot Project.

The Freer|Sackler hosted the Smithsonian Digitization Program Office’s fourth Rapid Capture Pilot Project, an effort to quickly and efficiently digitize collection items, in May 2014. The team digitized a variety of Asian ceramics from the Freer Study Collection. This is the first time digital images have been made available from this collection, which was established in 1923.
