POST: Preserving Digital and Software-Based Artworks

In a post to The Signal, Kate Murray (Library of Congress) summarizes a recent meeting of the NDSA Standards and Practices Working Group, focused on issues around preserving digital and software-based artworks. Presenters from the Goldsen Archive of New Media Art at Cornell University, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Smithsonian’s Time Based Media Art initiative, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art were asked to “share their experiences in both preserving and providing access to these unique and challenging digital objects.”
