The readers's editor on… the richness of digital archives bringing problems for readers and journalists

The readers's editor on… the richness of digital archives bringing problems for readers and journalists | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it
Once it was a journalist's lament that today's newspapers are tomorrow's fish and chip paper, a reflection on the ephemeral nature of news.

You won't find yesterday's news in the chippy any more. Where you will find it is in the digital archives of newspapers, and its force is anything but fleeting.

The Guardian's digital archive holds more than 1m articles. It's a rich resource of more than a decade's worth of print, podcasts and video material. And it is very popular.

340 million tweets are broadcast every day
25 billion pieces of content are created on Facebook every month
Factor in the amount of content being routed through LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr and other networks (and let’s not forget email), and if you’re attempting to keep up with even a smidgen of that, you’ve still got a real mess on your hands.

People employ a number of tactics to make this barrage of information more manageable.
