|Format:||HTML enriched with streaming audio and video. May borrow elements from a paper or broadcast version but has a unique layout.|
|Examples:||For links to online direct titles, use ABYZ News Links. Organized geographically.
Direct access: The New York Times, Ithaca Journal, Le Monde.fr, La Tercera.com, Shanghai Daily.com, CNN, BBC.
|Content:||Free Web access; full access may require registration. Same publisher as paper version. May be the current issue only. Lots of color and online-specific advertising that differs from the print advertisements. Very broad representation of geography and language; only the current day or very recent issues available for most titles; sometimes less available content than the print version; unique content: video and audio files, more color photos; usually the current day or week only is available free.|
|Pros:||Timely: the most current news available outside Twitter (sometimes articles are time stamped and updated serially); unique content, sometimes searchable; free. Access to many titles that are not available to us in print.|
|Cons:||Often contains current content only, usually less content than print or broadcast; ephemeral. Currently a source of controversy due to the volume of fake news published through online, news-like sources.|
|Access rating:||Mixed. Good for very current issues. Spotty archiving of past content. Networked.|
|Preservation rating:||Mostly poor. Many sites have current or recent issue only. Retention time usually not specified.|
|Notes:||The only format that offers streaming audio and video. Concept of editions is gone because of ongoing updating. International coverage is far beyond that is available in other formats; Chile, for instance, has over 60 newspapers available online.|
