Fate uncertain for closed Lee paper's archives

Bound copies of the Springfield News have been sitting in storage since Lee Enterprises closed the Oregon paper in 2006. Since many of the organizations most likely to save the bound editions are struggling with the economy, the future of those papers is uncertain.

The University of Oregon’s Knight Library rescued the volumes when the paper closed and obtained the paper's photo collection. The pages are saved on microfilm.
