The Chronicles II effort will bring representatives from critical stakeholder communities (newspaper publishers, press associations, journalism schools, and memory organizations) into structured conversation and debate to foster better understandings of each group’s perspectives, goals, and barriers to collaborative work for the purpose of preserving born-digital newspaper content.
This project produced eight “Action Teams” who undertook projects in news preservation in 2014-2015. The project culminated in the event, “Dodging the Memory Hole II: An Action Assembly,” held in Charlotte, NC, in March 2015.
