While there has been rapid growth in the creation and use of 3D data over the last decade, the ongoing development and evolving usage of these data have left many unresolved questions about their stability, durability, and long-term accessibility.
3D Data Creation to Curation: Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation collects the efforts of the Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation (CS3DP) initiative—a large practicing community of librarians, researchers, engineers, and designers—to move toward establishment of shared guidelines, practices, and standards. Using a collaborative approach for standards development that promotes individual investment and broad adoption, this group has produced a work that captures the shared preservation needs of the whole community.
Chapters cover best practices for 3D data preservation, management, metadata, legal issues, and access. Beginning with surveys of current practices, the authors provide recommendations for implementing standards and identify areas in which further development is required. A glossary of key terms and acronyms is included for easy reference.
3D Data Creation to Curation is intended for a broad audience from 3D data novices to seasoned practitioners, as well as those who may not be involved in the creation of the data but are tasked with curating, migrating, and sustaining access to these data long-term.

Assessing Our Approach (CoP)
Jennifer Moore is head of data services at Washington University in St. Louis. She leads a team of experts to address areas of digital data management, curation, analysis, and visualization. She’s been working on 3D capture and preservation since 2014. Moore is a co-PI on the IMLS grant Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation (CS3DP), which brings stakeholders together to establish agreement on how to make 3D data long-lasting. She is also a member of the Data Curation Network (DCN) Project Team, which is focused on building a shared data curation model across institutions, and a co-PI on the IMLS Specialized Data Curation Workshop grant, which builds on the DCN’s CURATE model to provide training and develop curation resources. https://orcid.org/0000-0001-6628-6820
Adam Rountrey, PhD is a research museum collection manager and 3D specialist at the University of Michigan Museum of Paleontology. He has been involved with acquisition, analysis, visualization, preservation, and dissemination of 3D specimen data at this institution since 2004. During this time, Adam developed the photogrammetry workflows and 3D web viewer for the University of Michigan Online Repository of Fossils, and he currently manages the online repository. He is a co-PI on the IMLS-funded Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation project and is particularly interested in issues related to rights and ownership of 3D data in museum settings. https://orcid.org/0000-0003-0939-9102
Hannah Scates Kettler
Hannah Scates Kettler leads digital scholarship projects from inception to preservation, managing the process of creation as well as providing research and development support as the head of digital scholarship and initiatives at Iowa State University. She is active in concerns regarding 3D creation and preservation, diverse representations in cultural heritage collections, and digital humanities. Scates Kettler holds a BA from the University of Iowa in anthropology with minors in art history and classics. She also holds an MA from King’s College London in digital humanities, where she specialized in virtual cultural heritage. She is co-PI on the IMLS-funded Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation project. https://orcid.org/0000-0001-7706-713X
