We describe a hybrid approach for access to digital objects contained within forensic disk images extracted from physical media. This approach includes the use of emulation-as-a-service (EaaS) to provide web-accessible virtual environments
for materials that may not render or execute accurately on modern hardware and software, and the use of
digital forensics software libraries to produce web-accessible file system views to support single-file access and provide visualizations of the file system.
