Smithsonian bringing entire collection to the Web

In an effort to keep museums relevant in an ever-increasing digital age, the renowned Smithsonian Institution announced (yesterday) plans to digitize its entire 137 million-object collection.  Not knowing how much it will cost or how long it will take, museum officials say they will prioritize which artifacts go digital first and add them to the new ‘netseum‘ as funds become available.
