Remote access to emulation, remote emulation and the emergence of a wide range of different cloud services, and end users interacting with them remotely through standardized (web-)client applications on their various devices offers the chance to combine both into an integrated access system to various obsolete computer environments. In order to provide a wide range […]

In the middle of November 2012, the first OPF Hackathon on Emulation took place in Freiburg, Germany. It brought together practitioners from different national libraries, library information services as well as a couple of researchers in the domain. The aim of the three-day Hackathon was to work on practical use-cases and real-live challenges stemming from […]

As many of you may know, Cal Lee, Andi Rauber and myself recently attempted to facilitate a broad discussion on emerging research challenges within the DP community at a workshop at IPRES 2012. We solicited – and received (thanks again to all contributors!) – wide-ranged contributions from Europe, North America, and New Zealand. The invitation […]

Emulation as a preservation strategy for memory institutions has been researched since Jeff Rothenberg’s article in Scientific American Magazine (1995). The strategy relies on emulating hard- and/or software that has become obsolete. Rendering a digital work by emulating the original platform for which it was originally created has the preservation benefit of recreating the (near)original […]

Hardware emulators are software implementations of (past) computer architectures to reproduce original environments for a wide range of purposes. Most emulators and virtual machines are programmed for local access, which means that they are installed on the machine the user is working on. The screen output gets redirected into a window or the whole screen […]
