University of Wyoming Libraries Receives Grant to Digitize Stereograph Images of Wyoming Including Yellowstone National Park

From University of Wyoming Libraries:

University of Wyoming Libraries recently received a grant from the Wyoming State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) to digitize stereograph images of Wyoming.

The stereographs provide a visual historical record of different locations around the state, including Yellowstone National Park.

Popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, stereographs communicated images of unique structures, places and cultures. When viewed through a stereoscope, their three-dimensional imagery provided a glimpse of hard-to-reach destinations and cultural landmarks.

After they are digitized, the stereograph images will be freely available via the UW Libraries website. The planned next phase of the digitization project will involve a partnership with UW’s Shell 3-D Visualization Center to create an augmented reality experience built on the collection.
