MDWG Survey: Conclusions/Recommendations ● ● ● Centralized registries for: ○ software collecting and preservation institutions (archival value and/or for rendering files) ○ software collection development policies ○ agreements, language specific to software access, and rights documentation ○ obsolete software accessible to those that wish to render files Defining the limits to existing standards and tools—not all the fields are included in each standard—and developing a game plan forward movement Defining a minimal set of metadata for software preservation, as well as outlining optimal sets that are situationally delineated (e. g. emulation) Documenting examples of existing metadata solutions for software preservation Considerations for including metadata as machine-actionable to support emulation as a service and other applications softwarepreservationnetwork. org | @softpresnetwork | https: //osf. io/a 7 uea/ | #digipres 17 | #r 2 c

Ontology of Software Preservation Research Questions https: //osf. io/3 jpqp/ ● ● ● Definitions ○ How can “software, ” “software curation, ” “software preservation, ” and “software access” be defined, and how do the definitions matter? Who and What ○ What institutions/organizations/communities/individuals are collecting, curating, preserving, and providing access to software, and what software they collecting, curating, preserving, and making accessible? ○ What software registries exist, and what are they focusing on/asking for currently? Why ○ What are the use cases for collecting, curating, preserving, and providing access to software, now and in the future? softwarepreservationnetwork. org | @softpresnetwork | https: //osf. io/a 7 uea/ | #digipres 17 | #r 2 c
