On Oct. 13–14, 2016, JDNA joined with the UCLA Libraries and the Educopia Institute to present "Dodging the Memory Hole 2016: Saving Online News," where presenters and attendees explored solutions to the most urgent threat to cultural memory today — the loss of online news content. Journalistic content,  published on websites and through social media channels, is fragile and easily lost in a tsunami of digital content. Join other professional journalists, librarians, archivists, technologists and entrepreneurs in addressing the urgent need to save the first rough draft of history in digital form.

The two-day forum — hosted by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute’s Journalism Digital News Archive (JDNA), UCLA Library and the Educopia Institute —  featured thought leaders, stakeholders and digital preservation practitioners who are passionate about preserving born-digital news. Sessions updated attendees about existing initiatives, examine critical issues and create a national agenda for protecting online journalism.
