Please join the Society of American Archivists’ Records Management Roundtable (RMRT) for the next installment of RMRT’s Virtual Hangout series, airing Thursday, March 3 at 12:00PM EDT (9:00AM PDT).
Joanne Kaczmarek and Brent West of the Records and Information Management Services at the University of Illinois will be joining the RMRT to provide an update on their work in processing Capstone email using predictive coding. Email provides a rich history of an organization yet poses unique challenges to archivists. It is difficult to acquire and process due to sensitive contents and diverse topics and formats, which inhibits access and research. At University of Illinois, they propose to leverage predictive coding used by the legal community to identify and prioritize sensitive content for review and redaction while generating descriptive metadata of themes and trends. This will empower records creators, archivists, and researchers to better understand, synthesize, protect, and preserve email collections.
We will start with an overview of the project and then dive into a moderated question and answer session.
As always, we’ll be accepting questions for our speakers from you. If you have a question or topic for discussion please leave it as a comment on this post or use the #saarmrt hashtag on Twitter.
