Evan Sandhaus - How to archive content

Evan Sandhaus

The new york times

From The Conference August 19, 2014

"Our relationship with the past has started to change."

Evan Sandhaus presents the future of the past told through the lens of the New York Times archive. He talks about the challenges of how to digitally manage the 46,595 issues that New York Times has produced since 1851. 

Let's face it: users don't have the time and inclination to find their way through the 163 year-old archive. Hence, the New York Times has found a way to successful digital archiving, based on three pillars: distribution, discovery and curation.
