Email archiving symposium

June 13 - 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.

Symposium registration is free!
