Forum to discuss news archiving
“Dodging the Memory Hole 2017: Saving Online News” is set for Nov. 15-16 at the Internet Archive in San Francisco.
Speakers, panelists and attendees will explore solutions to the most urgent threat to cultural memory today: the loss of online news content.
The forum, funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute and an Institute of Museum and Library Services Grant, will focus on progress made in and successful models of long-term preservation of born-digital news content.
Journalistic content published on websites and through social media channels is ephemeral and easily lost in a tsunami of digital content. Join professional journalists, librarians, archivists, technologists and entrepreneurs in addressing the urgent need to save the first rough draft of history in digital form.
