Schedule change

April 21st, 2010 by Jack

Due to your court visit Tuesday, the court research lesson originally scheduled for this week has been pushed back to Wednesday, April 28th.  I’m also aware the visit precluded you from attending the Facts on File research clinic, which was unfortunate.

On a brighter note, we have more class bylines to report…

Vishal Persaud had a piece in the Mott Haven Herald about an after-school program at P.S. 18 in the Bronx.

Michael Cohen wrote another story about a Golden Gloves boxer with a side gig in modeling, this time for Urban Latino’s web site.

Today’s bonus: The Library of Congress will be housing Twitter’s entire archive, and users may not have a chance to opt out!

Clips of the week

On the New York City News Service, a package chronicling the recent Green Expo included contributions by Liza Eckert, Eugenia Miranda and Jordan Shakeshaft.

At NBC Local Integrated Media, Vishal Persaud noted that a vintage Nintendo package sold on eBay for $13,000.

Last but not least, Andrea Swalec has been busy at “The Local” for the New York Times with stories on vacant apartments and a long-delayed supermarket.

Congrats to all!

Today’s bonus: You may want to check out the links below from a recent faculty training presentation on limiting legal risk in journalism and avoiding plagiarism.

Welcome to Craft II–The Research Wing

January 28th, 2010 by Jack

My name is Jack Styczynski and this is my fourth semester teaching research in Craft classes–my second with Rebecca Leung and first with David Lewis.  If you’re interested in my professional background, click here.  Personally, I’m a big New Orleans Saints fan (WHO DAT!) and a huge college hoop-head.

The primary purpose of this blog is to give you online access to my lesson material from class.  But you’ll also want to check in frequently for posts on my most recent research discoveries, such as the All Things Census blog, Databases and E-Journals from the New York State Library and the Listorious directory of Twitter accounts.

You’ll also see me spreading the love for some of your latest published work, such as that by Liza Eckert and Andrea Swalec this month, and Vishal PersaudJordan Shakeshaft and Erica Soto in December.

Welcome back, and see you soon!
