What better way to start a blog about news librarianship than to report a victory. Last night saw a team comprising of librarians from The Daily Telegraph, Times and The Guardian come a very close second in the annual SLA Europe Winter Warmer pub quiz.
Big deal, you may say. But the simple point I want to make is that news librarians still exist. There might not be so many of us around, but a few serious media organisations still believe that employing information professionals is integral to creation of quality journalism.
Anyway, vexed issue is going to be thoughts and ramblings of a news librarian as he makes his way through an ever changing media landscape.
