Review, Appraisal and Triage of Mail (RATOM)

Cal Lee, Sangeeta Desai | BitCurator Consortium

Review, Appraisal and Triage of Mail (RATOM), funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is a joint project of the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the State Archives of North Carolina.

RATOM is extending the email processing capabilities currently present in the TOMES software and BitCurator environment, developing additional modules for these tools along with select standalone software to support more advanced workflows. These will include identifying and reporting on entities present within emails and email attachments; identifying materials requiring redaction or review due to the presence of potentially sensitive information; and developing software modules to assist with preparation of materials for release or public access.

The project will rely on existing (mature) software libraries to provide core support for identifying and extracting the contents of email-containing formats, NLP tasks, and machine learning approaches.
