Greetings Colleagues!

The recording from this week’s episode “Episode 4: Software in Scholarly
Communications” is now available! You are invited to watch the recording
and explore the supplementary resources provided for this episode here:

This episode provides an overview of scholarly communication practices as
they relate to software preservation and citation within contemporary
scholarly research methods. Attention is paid to evolving and changing
practices in a variety of institutional settings (e.g. post-secondary
institutions, GLAMs, nonprofits), and to the need for disciplinary
responsiveness in publication and citation practices.

More to come this week with “Episode 5: Scaling Software Preservation and
Emulation” featuring Special Guests: Maureen Pennock
<> (British Library), Euan
Cochrane <> (Yale University) and Klaus Rechert
<> (University of
Frieburg) with Research Lead and Facilitator Paul Wheatley
<> (Digital Preservation
Coalition <>).

About the Series

The Software Preservation Webinar Series provides a survey of software
preservation contexts. Each episode explores a different software
preservation context by providing an overview, discussion with guest
speakers (specialists in digital preservation, software studies, scholarly
communication, open source software and more) and open discussion with
attendees. The webinar is jointly hosted by the Digital Preservation
Coalition <> (DPC) and the Software Preservation
Network <> (SPN). Special thanks
to Sarah Middleton (DPC) and all the members of SPN Training & Education
Working Group: Anne-Marie Trépanier (Canadian Centre for Architecture),
Sherry Lake (University of Virginia), Andi Altenbach (Studio Gang), Neil
Chue Hong (Software Sustainability Institute), Elizabeth Parke (McGill
University), Daina Bouquin (Harvard/Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics),
Julia Kim (Library of Congress) and Morgan McKeehan (University of North
Carolina, Chapel Hill).

Due to user limits on our web conferencing software, registration for the
series is now closed. However, all episodes will be recorded and posted to
the DPC and SPN websites.

We plan to build on this series with additional programming, including a
series of in-depth interviews with researchers, developers, archivists,
curators and others on their work in software preservation and curation.
Stay tuned!

On behalf of the SPN and DPC,
