Hi all,

This may be of interest to those in the SIGCIS community who also have 
an interest in software preservation:

The Software Preservation Network (SPN) is an organization established 
to advance software preservation through collective action. The 
membership consists mainly of archivists, librarians, and museum 
professionals, but participants from adjacent fields are welcome.

Currently, SPN is recruiting new working group participants. You could 
work with SPN on community outreach, law and policy, metadata, 
infrastructure, or education. There are opportunities available to plan 
events with allied organizations, participate in petitions for 
exemptions to the DMCA to support software preservation, develop 
metadata guidelines for software, analyze technical infrastructure 
available for providing access to software, and develop educational 
materials for those interested in supporting software preservation. No 
matter what aspect of software preservation motivates you, there is an 
opportunity to be involved with SPN. Learn more about all of the working 
groups here 
express your interest bycompleting the nomination form
