Journalism in America: Just the Facts

Release date: February 19, 2008

Breaking News journalism

 From the first multi-page newspaper printed in America in 1690 to today's ubiquitous mass media (newspapers, magazines, photographs, cartoons, radio, television, internet), journalism has projected  the identity of  a  cutting-edge,  adventurous, and glamorous profession.  Its complexities encompass politics, ethics, money, and fame, and much more.  The library's collection includes many books about the history of American journalism and the people who made that history.

This new display can be found in the display case on the left, as you enter the library.
