Target Audience: Librarians struggling with how to deal with archiving Born-Digital Ephemera
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will analyze and compare different approaches to preserving digital ephemera.
2. Participants will be able to plan their own digital preservation efforts.

The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine provides a great service preserving web sites that many librarians have used for research. Some libraries have even implemented their own versions for archiving digital materials, but new types of internet content have changed the game. Tweets disappear from Twitter's search within a week and a half after posting. YouTube videos can be taken down as quickly as they are posted. These new forms of digital content are often transient, with no permanent home, promise of preservation, or even plan for long-term data storage. Richard Leiter, host of the Law Librarian Blog Talk Radio Show, will lead a panel discussion on preserving digital ephemera. Preservation experts will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with archiving data. They will explain preservation efforts already underway, describe tools for preservation, and offer considerations when building collections of digital ephemera.
