Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation

Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation (CS3DP) was established in 2017 through funding from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The project brings together a diverse group of experts to develop foundational recommendations for the preservation, documentation and dissemination of 3D data. In this presentation, organizers will describe the project, the forthcoming book, and what’s on the horizon.

Free and open to all, pre-registration required.
