*This episode reviews existing software collections and the users of those
collections. In order to better capture current efforts in collecting
software, Research & Facilitation Lead, Anne-Marie Trepanier (Canadian
Center for Architecture), provides different collection profiles and the
set of features that characterize each of them. Through round-table
discussion, guests explore how collection development policies and
strategies for existing collections impact community goals of sharing and
reuse. Episode 2 features Patricia Falcao (Tate), Paula Jabloner (Computer
History Museum) and Tim Walsh (Canadian Center for Architecture). More to
come next week after “Episode 3: Software (Re) Use Cases” featuring special
guests Eric Kaltman (Carnegie Mellon University) and Matthew Allen
(University of Toronto, Harvard Graduate School of Design)! Episode 3
Research & Facilitation Lead is Andrea Altenbach (Studio Gang).  About the
SeriesThe 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).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,Jessica Meyerson*
