CyArk 3D Objects Resource Series Added to the Open Collection

Today, 122 new resources from CyArk.org has been added to the NCLOR’s Open Educational Resources collection. CyArk was founded in 2003 to ensure heritage sites are available to future generations while making them uniquely accessible today. CyArk operates internationally as a non-profit organization with the mission of using new technologies to create a free, 3D online library of the world’s cultural heritage sites before they are lost to natural disasters, destroyed by human aggression or ravaged by the passage of time. The subjects included in this series are; Archeology, Architecture, U.S. History, World History and Historic Preservation.
