Curatorial Issues in Architectural PracticesArchitects do not see the need for neither curating their digital databeyond the finalisation of Design nor consistently managing digitalproducts during the design process;Specific, contextually and professionally competent knowledge isrequired for handling architectural digital data;Post-hoc curations agreed procedures are biased toward the mission,competences and means of Archives;Built Environment related digital data bear numerous and unresolvedcuratorial issues.CONTEXTISSUES EMERGENCIESOPPORTUNITIESDEDICATECOURSEDESIGNCONCLUSIONS </li> <li> 4.

Digital Curation Module Design Management Tasks -CONTEXTISSUES EMERGENCIESOPPORTUNITIESDEDICATECOURSEDESIGNCONCLUSIONS(CREATE) to plan and implement consistent curatorial procedures along thedigital design workflows;(APPRAISE) to formulate data appraisal and selection criteria against a set ofeconomical and professional objectives to formalise information disposalprocedures;(INGEST) to manage the ingestion of digital assets according to agreed curatorialpolicies to ensure data authoritativeness persistence and accessibility;(PRESERVATION) to establish preservation policies according to professionaland legal needs to implement preservation procedures on the assets held in therepository;(STORE) to manage the persistent feasibility of data storage;(ACCESS) to monitor and restrict privileges for data access and reuse accordingto professional and legal requirements;(TRANSFORM) to plan and implement procedures to track the data reuse andtransformation according to good practices in IPR management. </li> <li> 8. Digital Curation Module Design- Technical Skills -CONTEXTISSUES EMERGENCIESOPPORTUNITIESDEDICATECOURSEDESIGNCONCLUSIONS(CREATE) expert knowledge of formats, data structure and digital designcomputing procedures;(APPRAISE) advanced knowledge of metadata standards and data quality assessment;(INGEST) thorough knowledge of both the purpose and the originating digital workflow of data;(PRESERVATION) understanding of preservation routines function and strategies;(STORE) knowledge of repository architectures options;(ACCESS) understanding of the techniques and procedures for privileges baseddata access;(TRANSFORM) knowledge of data watermarking, cryptographic techniquesoptions and format migration issues. </li> <li> 9. Foreseen Effects of Digital Curation educationon the Architect professionEnhanced control over commercial exploitation of Digital DesignProducts (effective IPR management);Technically aware use of CAD technologies (streamlined digitalworkflows);Profession renewal (Architect as content provider in the DigitalCultural Market).CONTEXTISSUES EMERGENCIESOPPORTUNITIESDEDICATECOURSEDESIGNCONCLUSIONS </li> <li> 10.
