Preserving News and Stewardship Changes
News is an integral and important part of the broad cultural record and key evidence to support a very wide range of scholarly inquiry. In this conversation I will partially recapitulate and partially re-assess comments that I offered in a keynote talk very recently at a conference on preserving the news, with particular but not exclusive focus on "born-digital" news. I will also connect challenges involved in news to a much broader framework I am trying to develop and that we have discussed several times in the seminar which looks at stewardship transitions as key control points and events in the survival and management of important segments of the cultural record.
In addition, we will hear short reports on recent activities, including the ASIST Annual Meeting.
