Emulation For Preservation of Digital Artifacts

An anonymous reader writes “Author Salman Rushdie donated his papers and notes to Emory University a while ago. Not surprisingly, many of Rushdie’s original notes, drafts, and correspondence existed in electronic form. Rather than printing them out or converting them to other formats, archivists at the university created an emulated image of Rushdie’s old computer, complete with old software. Researchers visiting the archive can read his email in Eudora and his Stickies notes, or read drafts of his books in ClarisWorks. When you leave your legacy to future generations, would you like a virtualized copy of your personal system to be included?”
