Attend Dodging the Memory Hole: Saving Born-digital News Content, Nov. 10-11 at RJI
A recent poll by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute found that about a quarter of news organizations have lost significant amounts of their news archive. Unlike print, digital news content can silently vanish in the blink of an eye.
Digital preservation is the key to ensuring long-term survival of your news content, content that news organizations need for context, credibility, reuse and monetization. That’s why RJI is asking journalists to join librarians, historians, archivists and entrepreneurs in formulating a national agenda for saving digital news content.
If you are a decision-maker in a news organization who recognizes the value of digital archives and want to change the future of the past, join RJI November 10-11 for the Dodging the Memory Hole: Saving Born-digital News Content forum at RJI in Columbia, Missouri.
A broad range of stakeholders, especially journalists, are needed to realize the goal of saving news archives on the local level while aligning such efforts from a national perspective. You can help make that happen.
Register now: The special conference hotel rate is available only until Oct. 9.
The event is made possible by grants from The Mizzou Advantage and RJI.
