CoSA PREPARE: Needs Assessment Survey Analysis & Report 

09-13-2021 11:34 AM

The Council of State Archivists (CoSA) is providing capacity-building services for email management and preservation to state and territorial archives through the University of Illinois’ Email Archives: Building Capacity and Community program, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. In order to determine specific needs and interests, CoSA developed a needs assessment survey and distributed it to its member organizations in May 2021. There was a strong response from state and territorial archives—87.5% of the 56 states and territories completed the survey. These states shared their priorities and obstacles in email preservation including transfer, preservation, processing, access, institutional and state-wide policies, documentation, and resources. Responses to the survey and the insights they provide are discussed in aggregate in this report.
