Registration has opened for a Members' Briefing Day entitled 'Designed to Last: Preserving Computer Aided Design' at the Conservation Centre, the British Library, London, Friday 16th July 2010. 

Computer aided design (CAD) has revolutionised modelling and drawing in many different sectors and CAD systems now underpin work in fields as diverse as animation, architecture, engineering, heritage management and manufacturing and it intersects with many different technologies such as 3d modelling, GIS, simulation and gaming.  But CAD has not received the same attention from the digital preservation community as other file and media types: there is precious little advice for archivists and repository managers who are faced with the question of managing these complex data sets through time. 

Details of the programme, with instructions on how to register are now online at:
