Hi S&P folks,
You’ve heard Kate and I mention the June Archiving Email Symposium the Library and NARA are co-hosting on our monthly calls and on the listserv. We wanted to pass along this invitation to our working group members. If you have questions about it, please let us know.
**Posting to the Email_Interest Group listserv as well. Please excuse duplication.**
The Library of Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration jointly invite you to attend the panel discussions at the Archiving Email Symposium hosted at the Library of Congress, in Washington DC on Tuesday, June 2, 2015.
As memory institutions increasingly process born-digital collections, one thing is clear: processing digital collections increasingly involves working with large quantities of complex email messages and their attachments. Workflows, toolsets and policies for accessing and preserving email archives are emergent and changeable.
In the face of these challenges, the Library and NARA are convening a symposium of practitioners who are directly working with email archives. This day-long meeting will bring together representatives of various federal agencies, academic and research libraries, technologists, curators, archivists and records managers working on collecting and preserving email to discuss challenges and solutions on four topic tracks: technical challenges, archival processing, records management and policy/guidelines development.
This invitation-only event is free but registration is required. We would like to extend an invitation for your attendance and ask that you please RSVP to Erin Engle by May 1, 2015.
Event title: Archiving Email Symposium
