Aliza Leventhal

Aliza Leventhal is the corporate librarian and archivist for Sasaki, an interdisciplinary design firm. In addition to supporting the firm’s institutional memory and knowledge sharing amongst practitioners, she proactively engages designers and technical professionals to better understand the features, workflows, and challenges that digital design files pose for their long-term access.

She is the co-founder and chair of the Society of American Archivist's CAD/BIM Taskforce in 2012, and continues to serve as its chair leading research and advocacy efforts with fellow archivists around digital design files and software. Focused on expanding visual and technical literacy for design and architectural archivists, she works to lower the barriers for archivists to engage with digital design records and raise awareness within the design industry of the significance of the records produced.
