Libraries and Journalism

In light of the recent discussion led by Jamie LaRue on Libnet regarding Libraries and Reporters debating whether libraries should consider expanding their missions to reporting news (I’m really!! paraphrasing here), I found the following note from American Libraries interesting. http://www.ala.org/ala/alonline/currentnews/newsarchive/2009/april2009/rutgers.cfm?persistent=&expy_dt=

Here’s a quote. “Rutgers is the only member of the Association of American Universities with a library program connected to a journalism program; the two schools merged in 1982. “Both librarianship and journalism are facing challenges,” he told AL, and through their affiliation in the school, “each of them can draw on the strength of the other.”
