Journalism and all aspects of the Newspaper industry.
To support the Journalism course offered each Spring Term. At this time, the selector makes sures that whatever resources the instructor wants for the course are made available. The current instructor takes a more practical approach rather than a theoretical one. Therefore, we do not select how-to-write books for Journalism at this time. We select books that look at the history of the discipline and other resources such as documentary films.
