Email Archives: Building Capacity and Community

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The email messages that people send and receive leave behind an information and evidence-rich documentary trail of individual, institutional, and cultural activities, one that can and should be amenable to future historical investigation and interpretation. Over the past few years, email preservation has become an increasingly feasible—though not yet routine or common—part of archives and digital preservation work. This session brings together practitioners from archives, libraries, and museums to discuss current and future developments of email archiving in the context of the Email Archiving: Building Capacity and Community (EA:BCC) re-grant program. Ruby Martinez, Email Archives Community Fellow, will facilitate a discussion amongst three awardees from the first round of funding who will provide an overview of their individual programs, as well as discuss the ways in which they can build capacity in a range of institutional settings. The awardees include Council of State Archivists, Inc. “CoSA Prepare: Preparing Archives for Records in Email”; Columbia University, “Creating Email Archives from PDFs: The Covid-19 Corpus”; and University of Albany, SUNY, “Mailbag: A Stable Package for Email with Multiple Masters”.
