Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation (CS3DP) has built a community of practice, which aims to produce recommendations for the long-term accessibility, usability and interoperability of digital 3D objects, recommendations that currently do not exist. In Oct 2017, The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded Washington University in St. Louis, in partnership with the University of Michigan and the University of Iowa, a National Leadership grant to address this emerging issue. In this presentation, project leaders will outline the complexities and current status of 3D data preservation efforts, introduce the community that has come together to work toward solutions and provide a CS3DP project update.
