Consider the Source: The Value of Source Code to Digital Preservation Strategies

Michel Castagné
2013 School of Information Student Research Journal  
The author surveys several approaches to software preservation and finds that, by supporting open source initiatives, digital libraries can improve their ability to preserve access to their collections  ...  One of the major challenges in the digital preservation field is the difficulty of ensuring long-term access to digital objects, especially in cases when the software that was used to create an object  ...  In addition to being extremely difficult to program, Bearman (1999) considers emulation to be disproportional to the needs of an archive when migration would be adequate, because he considers Rothenberg's  ...

Towards forensic-ready software systems

Liliana Pasquale, Dalal Alrajeh, Claudia Peersman, Thein Tun, Bashar Nuseibeh, Awais Rashid
2018 Proceedings of the 40th International Conference on Software Engineering New Ideas and Emerging Results - ICSE-NIER '18  
In this paper, we consider the meaning of forensic readiness of software, define forensic readiness requirements, and highlight some of the open software engineering challenges in the face of forensic  ...  As software becomes more ubiquitous, and the risk of cyber-crimes increases, ensuring that software systems are forensic-ready (i.e., capable of supporting potential digital investigations) is critical  ...  No work to date has considered the wider potential or implication of rigorous software engineering on the development of forensic-ready systems.  ...

Fostering Community of Practice Teaching Resources: Software Preservation and Emulation in Libraries, Archives, and Museums [article]

Amelia Acker
2020 Zenodo  
The overall learning objectives are to introduce early graduate students to preservation contexts where software emulation would occur, and how it is accomplished.  ...  How to use the resources: Each case study covers different learning objectives and has discussion questions that encourage groups to consider questions, challenges, and strategies in similar institutional  ...  These software preservation educational resources are meant for learning communities to learn more about a few case studies of software emulation where teams accomplished a preservation goal together.  ...

Towards the Preservation of the Scientific Memory

Brian Matthews, Shirley Crompton, Catherine Jones, Simon Lambert
2015 International Journal of Digital Curation  
In this paper we consider the requirements for preserving the memory of science. This is becoming more challenging as data volumes and rates continue to increase.  ...  Further, to capture a full picture of the scientific memory we need to move beyond the bit preservation challenge to consider how to capture research in context, represent the meaning of the data, and  ...  Matthews, Shaon, et al. (2009 ), Matthews et al. (2010 and Matthews et al. (2012) discuss the issues that arise when considering the preservation of software, including the motivations for its preservation  ...

PANIC: an integrated approach to the preservation of composite digital objects using Semantic Web services

Jane Hunter, Sharmin Choudhury
2006 International Journal on Digital Libraries  
In this paper, we consider the preservation of composite, mixed-media digital objects, a rapidly growing class of resources.  ...  By making preservation software modules available as Web services and describing them semantically using a machine-processable ontology (OWL-S), the most appropriate preservation service(s) for each object  ...  We consider the atomic sub-objects first and only after each of the sub-object has been dealt with, is the preservation of the overall composite object considered.  ...
