Please find information below about FREE workshop on preserving and curating software used to generate or manage research data, Monday 7 February 2011, at the JISC Offices, Brettenham House.
Subject: Workshop for digital curators and repository managers - Monday 7 February
Do you have cases where data is dependent on the software used to generate or manage it? Where you've been asked to preserve an online service? Or where software is a research output in its own right and needs curation?
If so, you need to understand where and how to preserve software, as well as data, for future use. Fortunately there is a free JISC-funded workshop intended to give you a head start in this emerging area. It is being held on 7 February in London, and is particularly well suited to your projects. Experts from the Digital Curation Centre, the Software Sustainability Institute, and the Science and Technology Facilities Council will be on hand to guide and advise practitioners through the particular challenges that software offers.
