Tour the Editorial Library of

The Columbus Dispatch

Join the Central Ohio Chapters of Special Libraries Association and the Association for Information Science and Technology (SLA Central Ohio and COASIS&T) as we continue our “Summer of Tours” by visiting the Editorial Library at the Columbus Dispatch.

What types of information and systems does a news library (and a newspaper) use?  We will answer that question by looking at the information systems, tools and physical facilities of the editorial library at The Columbus Dispatch.  The Dispatch uses a variety of open source tools to build and present the Dispatch’s editorial intranet.  Come and see what is involved in providing research information to a news organization.
