We are adding a trio of books to our Library. While designed for writers who are following the Computer-Assisted Reporting model, they are useful to anyone doing the deep dive into the fact pool.
These three books are not for the hit-and-run researcher, who is interested in a quick snapshot. For researchers who are in for the long haul, piecing the parts of the puzzle together over an extended period, these books are a valuable resource.
*Computer-Assisted Research is by Nora Paul and Kathleen A. Hansen
‘*Computer-Assisted Reporting — A Practical Guide (4th Edition) is by Brant Houston
*Mapping for Stories – A Computer-Assisted Reporting Guide is by Jennifer LaFleur and Andy Lehren
All are available through the Investigative Reporters and Editors, http://www.ire.org
