Journal-Sentinel's investigative journalism efforts

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is renewing its focus on investigative journalism projects. Managing editor George Stanley wrote about these efforts and the journalists involved in the projects in a column posted today on the paper's Web site.

I know I'm biased, but the obvious thing missing from the equation is having librarians working on the team producing such stories. Who else has the skills to search a variety of databases and can find those nuggets of information that enhance a story's quality?

Yes, I'm on a soapbox, but if librarians want to remain relevant, we have to keep advocating for the value we bring to any environment we are a part of.
