Skills Needed for Online Media Librarians

Newspaper archivists and librarians are best positioned to bring about the next stage in news site publishing, however several skills are more important than others.

  • Content Summarization - with a group of documents all dealing with a piece of content or fragment of content (person, place, thing), to be able to give a 1-2 sentence summary of what the content is.
  • Content Categorization - When something is similiar enough to something else.
  • Content Relationships - identifying and describing the links between multiple content items.
