I observe a similar perspective among my journalism mentors: for each library “makerspace,” there’s a community newsroom or mobile newsroom like TwinCities.com’s TC Rover.
Community engagement is a shared objective among library professionals and journalists. In both instances, the consumer and/or patron benefits by being empowered to transition from consumer to creator of media.
And as library school and volunteer experience supplements my professional journalism, this shared emphasis is an area of particular importance to me. It resonates in both capacities.
