Some recent news:
- The ePADD project team will be holding a hackathon following the Personal Digital Archiving conference at Stanford next March 29-31. This is in addition to the other conferences (LDCX, BDAX) also being held at Stanford that week. Look out for additional announcements as we get closer to the date and don't forget to submit your proposals for PDA by the deadline of this Friday, November 25.
- We held our second annual meeting with IMLS grant partners in October in New York City, hosted by METRO. It was a great meeting full of exciting ideas we look forward to pursuing in the next year.
- Our project director, Glynn Edwards, has joined a Task Force on Technical Approaches to Email Archives which is "charged with assessing current frameworks, tools, and approaches being taken toward email as critical historical sources." The task force is sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Digital Preservation Coalition.
- Peter Chan, our project manager, and Josh Schneider, our community manager, held a full-day workshop at UCSF for 20 archivists from around the SF Bay Area. We're very grateful to UCSF for hosting the workshop.
Lastly, we've added a list of ePADD users on our website. Please let us know if you would like to be added to this list!
