Email Preservation and Transfer

Wednesday, June 8, 2022

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Registration for this webinar will close at 4 PM on the business day prior to the session. All webinars are recorded for future viewing. 

Workshop Type: Webinar

Presenter: Monica Hauck-Whealton

Approximately 95% of New York’s government records, spread throughout its local governments and State agencies, are scheduled for eventual destruction.  What about the other 5% whose business, research, or historical value require that they remain accessible forever?  And, more specifically, what about the emails that fall within this category?

 During this webinar, we will discuss emails as permanent records, the challenges of maintaining access to them, and differing roles of local governments and State agencies in the preservation process.  We’ll also talk about how the State Archives manages the emails in its collections to ensure that they will remain available for future researchers and business users.
