EaaSI January Resource Highlight: "Emulation as a Service - Test Report"

Dear colleagues,

We hope this message finds you all safe and healthy.

With February right around the corner, the Emulation-as-a-Service-Infrastructure (EaaSI) team is happy to share our January Resource Highlight , “Emulation as a Service - Test Report.”

This report, published in October 2020 by colleagues at the Dutch Digital Heritage Network, details the methods, findings, and recommendations resulting from a pilot test of the EaaS framework. The pilot was coordinated by Eoin O’Donohoe and Claudia Rock at Sound & Vision and includes a video game use case from Regional Archive Alkmaar, an architecture & urban planning use case from Het Nieuwe Instituut, and a new media art use case from Beeld en Geluid. The report concludes with 5 recommendations for organizations to ponder as they consider whether and how to incorporate software preservation and emulation activities into their existing digital curation program.

Resource Highlights are monthly opportunities for the EaaSI team to showcase the range of work of EaaSI staff and partners. Resources may include (but not be limited to): staff blog posts that connect software curation and emulation, capacity building templates that provide structured activities for digital curation practitioners, and reports from our EaaSI partner organizations on their own emulation explorations.

NOTE: Keep an eye out in the next week or so - we’ll release the recording and supplementary materials from our January EaaSI Roundtable “What We Talk About When We Talk About Emulation.”
