How do you successfully manage and preserve email? The Collaborative Electronic Records Project (CERP - Smithsonian Institution Archives and Rockefeller Archive Center) and the Electronic Mail Collaboration Initiative (EMCAP - North Carolina, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania) members explain the XML preservation schema for email accounts co-authored and used by both organizations. Learn about the benefits of using the EMA schema for effective, efficient preservation of email accounts and their messages. In addition, youll hear how the schema can be used in trustworthy repositories to validate deposited email accounts, and how it can be adopted as a professional standard such as METS and EAD.

Upon completing this seminar, you’ll know:

Who should attend? Archivists, records managers, and librarians who will be dealing with or are handling email and other electronic records.

Some understanding of XML/HTML, such as recognizing the basic structure of an XML document, is useful!

Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop for hands-on experience.

Attendance is limited to 40.
