Apr: Uncovering the Story behind the Headlines (Library Journal/Gale Cengage)

Wednesday, April 2nd at 2 p.m. ET

Come relive the news as it happened. Valerie Komor takes you behind the scenes and deep within the AP Corporate Archives as she explores the content digitized for Gale’s Associated Press Collections Online.
From the Mexican War to the events of this past day, the Associated Press has covered breaking news when and where it occurs—but the printed page is just the beginning. Now, researchers can look beyond the reporting from this not-for-profit news cooperative and uncover its context, backstory, and logistics over the past seven decades.
Whether you are a student, teacher, or researcher, you'll find AP has much to teach us.
