California Polytechnic State University, in partnership with the University of Texas at Austin, will run a one-year planning and research project that will culminate in a forum on software preservation in support of cultural heritage organizations missions. The forum will solicit community input and build consensus around future steps for a national strategy for software preservation. The project team and partners will work to identify potential partners, explore licensing issues, gather empirical evidence for the need for software preservation, draft technical architecture specifications, and develop plans for sustaining a national effort. These activities will be in service of building community consensus on the best software preservation organizational model, to be implemented after this planning project.
