Trial of CUMINCAD database

By Jeanne Brown on September 5, 2006 3:02 PM | Permalink
For September only UNLV faculty and students can try out CUMINCAD.
CUMINCAD stands for Cumulative Index of Computer Aided Architectural Design. The CUMINCAD database provides access to full-text PDFs of all proceedings from ACADIA, eCAADe, SIGRADI, CAADFutures and additional CAD-related organizations, from 1985 onwards -- 7000+ research papers. You must log in as a new user in order to access the pdf files, but you can do a search without needing to log in. To try it out go to If you like it be sure and let me know so that I can pursue getting more long-term access! For those of you interested in Building Information Modeling [BIM]**: there are many papers in the database on that topic. **Remember that the Architecture Studies Library has recordings of two events from last spring where BIM was explored: April 25, 2006 -- panel discussion in the library at which representatives of Autodesk, Bentley, and Graphisoft presented their BIM products.
