Educating Journalism Students About News Archives: A Global Comparison With Special Focus on Spain and the United States

Rubén Domínguez-Delgado, Kathleen A Hansen, Nora Paul

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Journalists and news archivists are natural allies. Journalists require previously published reporting as context for their new stories. Archivists ensure that material is preserved for future retrieval. Local news archives serve as a cultural, legal, economic, and genealogical resource for their communities. Now, the archiving function in news organizations is relegated to information vendors with little input from journalists. Rarely are journalism and archiving coupled in programs that train future professionals. This article explores the current state of journalism and library science education globally and suggests ways to strengthen education in news archiving in these programs.
