Peer Reviewed Digital Preservation Website

Now this is a new concept. Looks like the NSF – National Science Foundation has supported the creation of a website housed at the University of Virginia that will be a peer reviewed online repository for 3D models of historic significance.

SAVE – Serving and Archiving Virtual Environments looks like a very impressive model for the scholarly community and perhaps beyond. For those who remember Second Life, the SAVE founders think there is an analogy, but with a historical perspective.

These kind of projects appear simple to stand up on the surface, but trust me it takes a lot of work to make something like this happen. Kudos to all involved.
