Lexicon Working Group


ePADD supports thematic keyword searching of email archives using lexicons, aiding the user in screening email for potentially sensitive information, as well as offering new ways to analyze and visualize the archive. The Lexicon Working Group explores the potential of lexicons to improve workflows in ePADD. Although ePADD currently ships with several lexicons, and they are fully customizable, there is room to both improve the current offerings, as well as generate and provide public access to additional lexicons geared towards meeting community needs. The Lexicon Working Group group was created to identify and help meet those needs. 


The ePADD Lexicon Working Group comprises professionals from accross the Library, Archival, and Museum communities, who have volunteered their expertise to support collaboration and information-sharing around the use of lexicons within ePADD to support archival workflows. To join the working group, or to share a lexicon that you have developed with the community, please contact the development team at epadd_project@stanford.edu.
