News Literacy and Preservation:
Finding, Using, and Losing the News

Saturday, June 26, 2010
1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Renaissance-Congressional Hall A/B

In the age of blogging, wikis, and social networking, the ways we harvest news are changing and the proliferation and transitory nature of news creates archiving challenges.  How do we help students integrate and evaluate nontraditional news sources versus established journalistic practices?  How do we preserve and provide access to both traditional and nontraditional sources?  Join EBSS in a panel discussion on the issues of news literacy and preservation.
