What will tomorrow bring for yesterday's news?

For centuries, this "rough first draft of history" has been saved and preserved by archives and libraries around the world.

But over the last four decades, news has transitioned from printed paper to digital files, and studies show that these files are in great danger.

Join stakeholders from all angles of this problem—news publishers and press associations, technologists and researchers, libraries and archives, corporations and funding agencies. Together, we will lay a crucial foundation for resolving this information crisis.

Dodging the Memory Hole II: An Action Assembly in May 2015 built directly upon the foundation of an earlier event - Dodging the Memory Hole 2014 - hosted at the Reynolds Journalism Institute in Columbia, Missouri.
