The #Dunhuang Caves, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, comprise 492 temples and contain some of the finest examples of Buddhist art spanning a period of 1,000 years. In October, ARL member library directors Brian E. C. Schottlaender, +University of California, San Diego, and Xuemao Wang, +University of Cincinnati, traveled to China to advise on an initiative to digitize the caves' resources, including 3-D imaging of murals, sculptures, and the caves themselves.
