This webinar, entitled “Legal and Institutional Policy Frameworks,” addresses questions such as:
- When you don’t collect software as an object, why do you do it?
- What role(s) does/do software play in your organizations and their long-term collection and preservation strategies?
- In the current version of the OAIS model software is seen as “representation information” but is considered part of the overall package to be preserved. How should digital preservation systems model/include software objects that are shared between potentially billions of AIPs but integral to each one without explicitly including e.g. a copy of the software environment in each AIP?
- What is the legal framework that allows us to develop institutional-level policy about software preservation and emulation?
