Project revives old software, preserves ‘born-digital’ data

Digital preservationists at Yale University Library are building a shareable “emulation as a service” infrastructure to resurrect thousands of obsolete software programs and ensure that the information produced on them will be kept intact and made easily available for future access, study, and use.

RESOURCE: User's guide for the use of TACL software

Dear colleagues,

Over the past four years, my programmer colleague, Jamie Norrish, and I have been developing TACL, a suite of free computer tools to assist in the anaysis of digitised Chinese Buddhist texts. I have now written a guide to the use of TACL in application to typical research questions, and made it available here:

I hope that interested readers of this list will read the guide and consider how they might apply these tools in their own work.
