Millions of Messages: Processing Gubernatorial E-mail

Join Library of Virginia staff members Roger Christman, senior state records archivist, and Susan Gray Page, digital archives coordinator, for a talk on the real-world challenges and opportunities associated with capturing, preserving, and accessing the e-mail of an outgoing governor. The Library is the permanent home for the records of Virginia's governors. Beginning with the records of our first governor, Patrick Henry (1776–1779), through the administration of James Gilmore (1998–2002) those records were primarily paper. The explosion of electronic records in the 21st century has created new considerations and expectations for public access to these materials.
