Reference librarian at work editing in newsroom

My most common edit today at the Lake County Record-Bee: researching addresses and phone numbers that were left out of press releases. It amazes me how often people omit basic information about an upcoming event. At the intersection once again between journalism and library service: The reference librarian’s search for information is an integral part of my editing.
