Recording of the March 17, 2017, ACRL DCIG: Using ePADD to process and provide access to email archives

URL: https://youtu.be/fx5z1hFWVdw

ePADD is an open source and freely available software package that allows individuals and institutions to appraise, process, and make available for research email of potential historical or cultural value. The software primarily accomplishes this goal by incorporating techniques from computer science, including natural language processing.

In November 2015, Stanford Libraries and partners received grant funding through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) for three years to further develop the program’s scalability, usability, and feature set.

In this session, Glynn Edwards (ePADD Project Director and Head of Technical Services in Special Collections, Stanford University), Peter Chan (ePADD Project Manager and Digital Archivist, Stanford University) and Josh Schneider (ePADD Community Manager and Assistant University Archivist, Stanford University) demo the latest release, answer questions about the software, and discuss opportunities to contribute to ePADD's development.
