hurdles in software preservation, to imagining future use of
software-dependent data, and to forming a mutual understanding of
when/where collective action is necessary to enable future use. We
earnestly hope you will join the discussion.

The webinar series is free to attend and open to all.  Registration will

Thank you for your time and consideration.

We look forward to talking to you soon.
