another one bites the dust

Just weeks after the 150 year old Colorado mainstay Rocky Mountain News died, the 149 year old Seattle Post-Intelligencer has also folded its paper pages for the last time. It has refocused to provide web only content.

So, again I ask two questions:

1. How do we, as preservation officers of printed history, harvest and preserve web-only content and

2. How do we continue to preserve small, rural newspapers that don't have web content when microfilm services are becoming dinosaurs?

I invite you to comment no matter your position. I'm interested in what you think.
