Call for Contributions: Email Archiving Symposium

The Email Archives: Building Capacity and Community program is pleased to announce a Call for Contributions for the Email Archiving Symposium. The symposium will take place over the course of three days and online, from June 13 to June 15, 2023

Email archives are a valuable source of information and evidence. As more institutions grapple with challenges, and as others realize the full potential of email archives as a resource, age-old questions are being looked at anew.  The goal of the EA Symposium is to highlight the ways that now, more than ever, we can and must fully integrate email preservation and access into archival practice. Whether it’s libraries, archives, museums, government, or corporations, every institution that uses email needs a solution for managing and archiving it.

The symposium will explore the current state of email archiving and reflect on future opportunities for progress. We welcome contributions on all aspects of email archiving including:

  • Discovery and uses of email archives
  • Social and cultural value of email records and collections 
  • Email management and retention policies and practices
  • Technologies for managing email archives
  • Outstanding community needs and future developments
  • Email as a resource for research and scholarship

The deadline for submission is Friday, March 3, 2023.
