Software Curation Readiness

The curation-ready software working group aims to provide guidance, framed by use cases, for making software repositories or catalogs more useable by improving software’s “curation readiness”.

Two perspectives will be explored. The first is the archival/museum perspective which is concerned with providing access to culturally important software and deals mainly with (often commercial) software that has already been released. The second perspective deals with software which is developed or intended for use in academic settings in which curation activities can take place at earlier stages in the software lifecycle.
