ePADD 5.1 released!
We are very excited to announce the release of ePADD 5.1!
ePADD is free and open-source computational analysis software developed by Special Collections & University Archives and partners that facilitates screening, browsing, and access for historically and culturally significant email collections.
Read on for the latest news from the project team.
ePADD v5.1 fixes a small number of bugs introduced in the previous release. ePADD 5.0, released in January 2018, introduced a number of innovations to better support appraisal and processing workflows, based on community use cases and user feedback. These include: much more robust label management to streamline taking actions across sets of messages, support for time-based embargos (relying upon email message dates), new lexicons, and many additional export options to support network visualization and digital preservation workflows.
We have held a number of workshops over the past few months, including a workshop at the Getty Research Institute on March 28, sponsored by the Los Angeles Preservation Network. We have also delivered conference presentations, including a project briefing at the CNI 2018 conference in San Diego, CA on April 12.
August 12-18: Our Project Director, Glynn Edwards, will be joining a panel at SAA 2018, Email Archiving Comes of Age.
