Webinar: Uncovering the Story behind the Stories with Associated Press
April 2, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Think you know history? Come relive the news as it happened. Valerie Komor, Director of the Associated Press Corporate Archives, 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 with the Associated Press Collections Online, available in three ground-breaking archives: News Features & Internal Communications, U.S. City Bureaus Collection, and the Washington, D.C. Bureau Collection. These archives contain an extensive trove of wire copy, AP internal communications and publications, and include coverage of press conferences, travel, speeches, campaigns, and messages to Congress.
Whether you are a student, teacher, or researcher, you’ll find AP has much to teach us about business, communications, education, humanities, journalism, political science, sociology, psychology, criminal justice, and so much more.
