This paper presents Epimenides, a system that implements a novel interoperability dependency reasoning approach for assisting digital preservation activities. A distinctive feature is that it can model also converters and emulators, and the adopted modelling approach enables the automatic reasoning needed for reducing the human effort required for checking (and monitoring) whether a task on a digital object (digital
collection in general) is performable. Finally, the paper describes (in the form of scenarios) concrete preservation activities of a research data archive (DANS) and elaborates on how Epimenides could be used and the benefits that would bring
