Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program

Library staff from California Polytechnic State University and the University of Texas at Austin will train a cohort of archivists, librarians, and curators to develop emulation and software preservation services in their cultural heritage organizations. Emulation is a digital technique that allows new computers to run legacy systems so older software appears the way it was originally designed. While a broad range of cultural heritage institutions need to access and preserve legacy software, most do not have the expertise or resources to do so. The project will build the skillsets of participating individuals through hands-on experiences, as well as develop a cohort for broad implementation of emulation and software preservation services across the cultural heritage community.
