The Importance of Archiving

By definition archiving is a practice that is utilized to organize documents or records that provide information about a place, institution or group of people. The preservation is conducted to allow future generations to have access to items that may serve to have cultural, historical or evidentiary value.

In 2019, Colorado Press Association will be launching a campaign to streamline the archiving of your publications. We are recommending that you begin utilizing the Publisher Portal through NewzGroup. NewzGroup offers archive hosting and has been working with Colorado Press Association for more than ten years. 

There are many reasons to utilize NewzGroup, here are just a few:

  • Membership Benefit: The service is a benefit of your membership and the uploading process is simple to learn and takes very little time to perform.   

  • Content Protection: All uploaded content is retained in exact facsimile and securely posted in two separate locations. The historical preservation serves as protection against a host of catastrophic events that may occur from weather to data storage failures.

  • Text Searchable Archives: Reduce the time it takes to search for relatable content. By simply utilizing keywords, exact timeframes and specified newspapers, your search can provide the content you need to provide updates to past articles as well as research information for future articles.

  • Efficient Statewide Advertising Service: In a matter of minutes you can provide electronic proof-of-publication pages to substantiate services to advertisers. Rather than mailing copies, you can upload and send the proof digitally, all uploaded content can be easily browsed and relevant pages extracted.

  • Budget-friendly Substitute: Postage can be costly; this feature allows you to digitally upload your newspaper and not only eliminate that expense from your budget but from ours as well.
