- Newspaper Archive Summit
The expense of digital preservation for the news producer will vary depending on how much of the effort is managed in-house. By collaborating with those who already have the infrastructure, the cost to news agencies could be very little indeed.
Edward McCain was deeply concerned as he watched the Tucson (Ariz.) Citizen, a newspaper he had once worked for, close its doors without a good system in place to preserve and access its print or online archives.
A mandate to preserve — a white paper (PDF) — was produced for the Newspaper Archive Summit Network by Victoria McCargar, veteran journalist, archivist and digital curation consultant.
On April 10-12 scholars, journalists, newspaper publishers, librarians, digital archivists and digital newspaper vendors gathered at RJI for for "The Newspaper Archive Summit: Rescuing orphaned and digital content."
Recorded sessions from the Newspaper Archive Summit, held at RJI on April 10–11, 2011.
