Through the making of this project we have gained useful experience and valuable insights in a number of fields. We have learned how expensive it is to realize a workable project. We have also learned that it usurps many resources for the individual project maker. Such a project takes a lot of time and money!

On a professional level we have gained valuable experience in the scanning of sensitive drawing material by large format scanner. This is a technique that combines high productivity with a low pr. item cost compared to traditional as well as digital photography. Through the project we have also gained experience in the construction, storage and maintenance of large amounts of data material.

Finally, we have gained much experience in regard to the integration of data from two essentially different collections and in the virtual presentation of these collections on the Internet.

Joint projects like this, which cross traditional institutional boundaries, are highly recommended.
