Experimenting with ePADD: finding strategies for screening and processing email

I’m excited to make my debut post in my new role as the Digital Archivist for Special Collections!  Since I’m the newest member of team ePADD I thought it would be only fitting to write my inaugural post on the subject of email.  I recently worked with the email contained in the Robert Creeley papers and it gave me the opportunity to experiment with the ePADD software and find some effective strategies for processing email.  Working on this project also gave me a chance to think a little more deeply about how we process email and how we document the decisions that we make

Every few years, when Special Collections-Redwood City is hosting a number of summer students and interns, we make a trip to Alice’s Restaurant for lunch to celebrate their accomplishments and contributions. It’s also a way to say thank you to our Redwood City staff for a very productive year. Sadly several staff members were unable to make it at the last minute as jury duty and emergency training took precedence.

Adelante Comunidad opens this week in the South Lobby of the East Wing of Green Library. The exhibit, which draws on posters and other materials from the collections of the Stanford University Archives, celebrates over four decades of graphic arts produced by the Stanford Chicanx and Latinx community. Many of the posters were transferred from El Centro Chicano y Latino earlier this year, and highlight educational events and speaking series sponsored by El Centro, and Stanford MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán).
