In 2015 CHM received a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to preserve and present the story of software. As part of this grant, CHM established the Center for Software History. Seen here is the center’s software preservation lab at the Museum’s offsite storage and research facility, the Shustek Center. The Center for Software History is dedicated to software access, preservation, interpretation, and research. SHiPP will be a major step forward in advancing CHM’s efforts to provide greater access to historic software. Like any other archival collection at CHM, each piece of software is cataloged. Then, the software is read and its digital surrogate preserved by deposit into the Museum’s digital repository.
