Email Archiving Project at Harvard University

Harvard University Libraries began planning for an email archiving project in early 2007. The two-year pilot project was undertaken to implement a system for the ingest, processing, preservation, and eventual end user delivery of email, in anticipation of it becoming an ongoing central service at the University after the pilot. In 2010 they published a paper describing some of the unexpected challenges encountered during the pilot project and how they were
addressed by design decisions.
