Archivists are collaborating with journalists to preserve the news in digital form. At risk is the last 30 years of reporting, created on obsolete or obsolescent platforms. The prospect of losing text, audio, graphics and video has increased as news enterprises struggle economically. Panelists feature updates from the University of Missouri's "Dodging the Memory Hole" initiative and from The Associated Press, which seeks to preserve its Text Archive.
