A full-day workshop on email archiving for art museums

Museums and the Web Deep Dive: Assessing Tools and Best Practices for Email Preservation and Access in Art Museums
About | Program | Register | Sponsor

A special session hosted April 1st as part of Museums and the Web 2014

As many of you know, I have been very concerned about the lack of email archiving in museums. I chaired a session a few years ago at MCN and found that I am not alone in my concern. Since then, things have not improved. In fact, one might say they have worsened as the volume of email continues to increase, as does its use for types of museum correspondence that are crucial for us to preserve.

The problem, simply stated, is that lack of robust archiving and retrieval for email correspondence in today’s art museums may limit the primary source materials available to future generations of students, scholars, and the public. This is an issue for directors, curators, educators, researchers, archivists, collection managers, and technology staff.
While there are commercial products for email archiving, they are built to serve corporate data-retention policies, not future research and scholarship. Focused on maintaining emails for five, seven, or ten years, these products rarely are expected to retain emails indefinitely. They may have inherent limitations for our community due to their different intended contexts of use.

It is time for us to focus on this problem as a community: time that we look at what is being done to archive email in corporate settings, universities, and state and federal governments, and time we do something about a problem that has been developing in our museum community for more than 20 years.

So, I have asked Susan Chun and Dale Kronkright to chair and organize a Museums and the Web full-day Deep Dive into this issue. We will explore previous and ongoing work in the GLAM community , examining the problem from both technology infrastructure and procedure and policy angles. We will review commercial and open source technology solutions. We will gather commercial vendors and see how their solutions match our needs. We will hear about the work being done in other spaces such as government and education. We will publish the results, and form a working group to move this issue forward, supported by the proceedings of this workshop.

I have posted an overview of the issues, as well as a link to the registration page, here:

(note that this event is part of Museums and the Web 2014, but it is a separate registration; participants need not attend the whole MW 2014 conference).

Deep-Dive registration includes coffee breaks, lunch, and a special reception. You can register here.

We are now developing the detailed agenda and background reading list. I would love to hear your suggestions and comments to ensure we don’t miss anything important. We are also looking for participants for lightning talks on desired use cases or horror stories or top wishes for functionalities related to email archiving. To further the discussion we have created a Google Group for email archiving in museums.

Please forward this announcement to prospective attendees and post to lists as appropriate.

Looking forward to seeing you at this MW Deep Dive on April 1st, 2014.

Museums and the Web is the largest international conference devoted to art, science, and natural and cultural heritage online. Since 1997 it has hosted more than 20 events for museum professionals in the USA, Asia and Europe. Every year our North American conference features the best and most ground-breaking digital work in museums around the world. Its proceedings, freely available online, represent one of the largest archives on digital innovation in the cultural sector, and serve as an important resource for professionals, students and others working with museums:

In 2013 we hosted Museums and the Web 2013 in Portland with 580 attendees from 44 countries, a Deep Dive trip to learn about the ground-breaking “Gallery One” installation at the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the 2nd Annual Museums and the Web Asia conference was held in Hong Kong and Beijing, China. MWA2013 included presentations by leading technologists and museum innovators from the Asia Pacific region, North America, Europe, and the Middle East. By hosting two sequential events MWA2013 attracted more than 300 attendees from 24 countries.

2014 promises to be another busy year starting with MW Florence February 19-21, 2014 in Florence; Italy, MW2014: Museums and the Web 2014, April 2-5, in Baltimore Maryland, USA; a Deep Dive on Email Archiving in Art Museums as well as an event in the fall in Asia. Exhibitors looking to reach museum technologists from around the world are invited to sponsor, advertise, or reserve a space in the exhibit halls at these events. In addition to these well attended and well respected events we have a strong social media presence with more than 34,000 followers on twitter, 11,000 follower on LinkedIn and an extensive email list.

To allow sponsors to take advantage of these diverse events and reach hundreds of interested participants, as well reach our social media audience, we have created anew sponsorship schedule that includes your booth, print and online advertising at multiple events, drink tickets and more

Most events include exhibitor and advertising opportunities as well. Early bird rates apply for Exhibitors through December 31st, 2013 when you register for Museums and the Web 2014 (Note exhibit spaces are limited and will be provided on a first come, first served basis).

Sponsors and exhibitors may also propose an exhibitor insight session or join a parade.

If you have other ideas about how you want to participate please contact us.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in Baltimore April 2-5, 2014
