Event description

Description

The EaaSI (Yale University) and Fostering a Community of Practice (Cal Poly) projects, both affiliated efforts of the Software Preservation Network (SPN), invites your participation for a full-day workshop in August 2019, in conjunction with the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting, to explore software preservation and emulation in context. This program is distinct but complementary to the Emulation in the Archives workshop offered by our colleagues at the University of Virginia Libraries in July 2019.

Event Objectives:

  • Share experiences across the Fostering Communities of Practice and Scaling Software Preservation and Emulation project cohorts

  • Engage a broader set of stakeholders in thinking through our capacity to support software preservation at the organizational and consortial levels

  • Understand the current barriers to participation in software preservation and emulation

  • Present/Convey current understanding of legal frameworks supporting consortial software preservation

  • Facilitate hands-on learning about emulation

Possible Attendee Outcomes:

  • Familiarity with FCoP and EaaSI project goals and deliverables

  • Understanding of how software preservation and emulation fit into their organization’s preservation and access goals

  • Exploration of what makes sense for their organization to tackle and what makes sense to focus on consortially

  • Introduction to metadata models and workflows for describing software and configured emulation environments

  • Understanding of current legal framework underlying software preservation workflows, reuse, and sharing

  • Concrete resource-guide:

    • (completed in-person) Organizational self-assessment of digital collections’ technical requirements and scenarios for use and access

      • Consider what you have

      • Consider existing policies

      • What emulation service model might best fit their needs

    • (implemented afterward) Development of an action plan for development and implementation of emulation services within participant’s organizational context
