Technical Approaches to Email Archives

This session will report the work of the Task Force on Technical Approaches to Email Archives. With support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Digital Preservation Coalition, the Task Force spent 18 months assessing technical frameworks, tools, and gaps concerning email collections. These materials are of high interest to scholars, students, and members of the public working in many subject areas. This session will focus on practical steps that organizations are taking to support the acquisition, preservation, and accessibility of email collections, while also reviewing recommendations for future work and opportunities for cross-institutional collaboration.
