Architectural digital data, especially in the Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) format, raises curatorial, technological, and archival issues in terms of access and long-term preservation. In expectation of repositories receiving petabytes of architectural records, some frameworks are beginning to emerge from the diversity of voices in each ofthese realms. The discussion of preserving the complex data embodied in CAD files must mirror the dynamic nature of the data, requiring a cross-disciplinary approach that will foster collaboration among colleagues where experience and knowledge is openly shared.

Ball: Lost in Translation: Technological Views on Preserving CAD
Smith: Open Archives Information System Reference Model (OAIS) and Preservation of CAD/BIM Material
