ARL has released "ARL Awarded Sloan Grant to Help Preserve Software, Save Cultural Record, Advance Discovery."

Here's an excerpt:

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has been awarded a $315,000 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to develop and disseminate a Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Software Preservation. This code will give individuals and institutions clear guidance on the legality of archiving software, in order to ensure continued access to digital files of all kinds and to offer hands-on understanding of the history of technology.
