Concierge 34: ePADD

For these Concierge sessions, join the development team from ePADD, open source software developed by SUL’s Special Collections and University Archives that uses machine learning and natural language processing to support the appraisal, processing, discovery, and delivery of historical email archives.

Glynn Edwards (Head of Technical Services, Special Collections, and Born-Digital Program), Peter Chan (Digital Archivist) and Josh Schneider (Assistant University Archivist) will discuss the genesis of the project, provide an overview of the software, and address what community efforts like ePADD mean for the future of providing scholars with access to digital archival materials in special collections repositories.

These sessions will take place in the IC Classroom of Green Library on:

  • April 12, 2:00-3:00 pm
  • April 13, 10:00-11:00 am (This session will be recorded.)
