The New York Times is at the forefront of the latest technologies and innovations to vet, produce, and communicate stories to its readers at the highest possible level of journalistic integrity and clarity. As an academic licensing provider for The New York Times, CRL is pleased to co-present a virtual event at 3 p.m ET / 2 p.m. CT on January 25 featuring Times journalists. Panelists will discuss groundbreaking newsroom initiatives transforming the way data is conveyed, information is presented, and knowledge disseminated on the most pressing issues of our day.

This webinar is open to the public, and we invite the CRL community to share this event with colleagues, students, and patrons. Together, we'll explore the synergies between journalists and library professionals' collective efforts towards novel, inventive knowledge creation methodologies.
