The Digital Library Initiative (DLI) concerns itself with the automatic creation, organization, and indexing of complex collections of data. With its own wealth of data types, the construction industry pushes the boundaries of the current technologies, especially with regards to automatic archival of construction project information. Many issues unique to the construction projects, such as data provenance and multi-media searching, require the integration of many technologies being developed at the various DLI funded research universities. This paper seeks to define those issues, the research being done, and provide some direction for future work in this area.
