News librarians roles expanding
E&P Online has a Story that talks about News librarians. They say news librarians are much better appreciated these days, and their roles are expanding. The skills the librarians possess are becoming increasingly important. Journalists run the risk of smothering in the information overload, librarians/news researchers help make sense of it all. Now why can\'t other librarians get this kind of respect?
A new book is out that should be of some use to journalists who want to be better skilled at using the Internet as an integral part of their reporting. \"Super Searchers In The News\" (Information Today Inc.), written by Paula Hane and edited by Reva Basch, takes the approach of interviewing 10 experts in using the Internet as a news research tool.
