A mandate to preserve: Assessing the inaugural Newspaper Archive Summit

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.

This white paper provides an assessment of the first Newspaper Archive Summit and offers suggestions for next steps.

On April 10-12, 2011, the Reynolds Journalism Institute, MU Libraries and Mizzou Advantage from the University of Missouri, and the Library of Congress, brought together professionals from archives, historical societies, libraries, news publishing and news content vendor industries, to discuss the benign neglect and the growing need to rescue threatened news collections.
