Juilee Decker, professor and program director of museum studies, and David Messinger, professor of imaging science, presented their paper “Under the Hood: Multispectral Imaging for Historical Artifacts” at the 51st annual meeting of the American Institute for Conservation in May in Jacksonville, Fla. Their project, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, offers an accessible, user-friendly system and software that can be used on small format historical documents, sheet, and leaf collections to recover obscured and illegible text on historical materials and to document current condition.
