 Ephemera -
transitory written or printed matter 
which are meant to be thrown away after one use or
not intended to be retained or preserved.



Ephemera (ἐφήμερα) is a noun, the plural neuter of ephemeron and ephemeros, Latin for ἐπί - epi "on, for" and ἡμέρα - hemera "day" with the ancient sense extending to the mayfly and other short lived insects and flowers and for something which lasts a day or a short period of time.
[above: mayfly]

Museum and national libraries may collect, organize and preserve ephemera as history.
