REGISTER: EaaSI Roundtable, January 29 @ 9am Pacific Standard Time

Dear colleagues,

The EaaSI team is thrilled to introduce our Roundtable series!

The Roundtable series will consist of in-depth conversations about issues in emulation, highlighting specific use cases from the software preservation community. Each roundtable is a one-hour long virtual event that is free and open to all.

We’re kicking off this series with “What We Talk About When We Talk About Emulation” on January 29 @ 9am Pacific Standard Time and featuring the following roundtable speakers:

  • Tracy Popp - University of Illinois
  • Eric Kaltman - California State University, Channel Islands
  • Fernando Rios - University of Arizona

Register here:

Co-facilitators Ethan Gates and Jessica Meyerson will cover the following questions with our speakers:

  • What has been your process for introducing or advocating for software preservation and emulation at your organization?
  • How are people learning software preservation and emulation concepts and terms?
  • How have/are you socializing these concepts - teaching, research, exhibits, policies, workflows?
  • What types of questions are researchers, students, and faculty interested in v. questions from colleagues in collection development and digital curation?
  • What are one or two key concepts that you would like everyone to understand, regardless of the type of use case they may be interested in?

Following on from Dr. Amelia Acker’s research on the FCoP project - What/How do you think about the differences between serving up an emulated experience, and serving up data and existing collection materials – from the perspective of the library?


But the recording and transcript will be made available for free on the SPN site approximately a week after the panel. We’re investigating expanding our capacity for future roundtables!!

Thanks and hope to see some of you there.
