Newslib is a specialized library blog for Librarians, News Researchers and library workers who support newspapers, television programs and documentaries.
For example, if a reporter needs background on a topic a News Librarian can help gather accurate information.
Sometimes a News Researcher can help generate news stories. There is a great example in an article found on the American Journalism Review site; where a News Researcher plowed through the statistical data to find fraud in Katrina based assistance.
On the blog you can also find job openings, networking opportunities and links to others news librarian sites. One of the best is a link to the Special Libraries Association News Division web site. You can get a good feel for what it would take to work in the profession.
