Software is as integral as a research paper, monograph, or dataset in terms of facilitating the full understanding and dissemination of research. However - unlike books and journal articles - the infrastructure, guidance and incentives for citing and preserving software have been absent, and it can be unclear how research libraries and archives should support this.
We present the current status of software citation in the researcher and publishing communities, summarise how libraries can build on the available guidance, and showcase existing efforts.
