dc.description.abstract"Are you concerned about the longevity of your news organization's content? Have you lost any content or critical metadata through the constant churn of shifting digital technologies? Can you pull up the original, full-resolution videos and photographs your newsrooms produced for that major breaking news story last year? Can you prove definitively that you own the copyright to the story that went with it? And are you wondering whether you can locate and access the evergreen content you need for that proposed new digital product you're considering on food or travel or sports? If any of these questions worry you, or you wonder about the future of the public record of our communities in the age of massive expansion of digital news channels and sources, there are problems that need to be understood and solved, and steps newsrooms can take to ensure availability, access and control of digital news content and assets. That's the purpose of this report, to provide the results of research into what's happening in today's news media when it comes to preserving irreplaceable digital news content. And to share the best ideas and practices news organizations can adopt to address the common problems that can so easily threaten the digital news content we are creating every day. In an effort to address these questions, a research group from the University of Missouri Libraries and the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute launched an 18-month-long project to assess the status of preservation of born-digital news content across the news industry. Supported by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this report provides the results of that research, conducted through onsite and video conference interviews, including a wealth of information and analysis on a little-known, largely hidden problem that's been developing in the shadow of the news industry's financial crisis and the shift to digital production and publishing. This report includes a User's Guide to finding and understanding what's in each section, followed by a concise Background on how the switch to digital publishing, and the collapse of old business models helped fuel the upheavals that developed into today's preservation problems. A summary of the Methodology used in this research comes next, followed by the report's Findings, Recommendations, Conclusion and Appendices. ..."--Executive Summary.eng
