The Training and Education working group of the Software Preservation Network (SPN) works to facilitate and support software curation and preservation through knowledge sharing and dissemination. This working group engages researchers, librarians, scholars, institutions, and other software preservation initiatives to produce content that brings awareness to the critical need for software preservation, the complexities of this task, and the need for disciplinary specific workflows and solutions. In this presentation members will share recent work and content from the Training and Education working highlighting the forms of webinars and in-depth interviews as a method for engaging the vast and distributed network working on and with software curation and preservation. Engaging this network is vital to establishing best practices and learning how to move forward with software curation and preservation with an eye to creating accessible archives, tools, and shared methodologies.
