Worldcrunch Editor Jeff Israely To Discuss Future Of International News At ASERL Event
Worldcrunch co-founder and editor-in-chief Jeff Israely will discuss the changing landscape of international news in a digital "fireside chat" on Feb. 2 hosted by the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL)
Research libraries serve a community that by its very nature is international, both because the areas of research and the scholars themselves inevitably cross borders. Beyond the specifics of their individual research interests, this community longs to be plugged into the world at large: understanding the broader issues of a globalized world, from politics to economics, science and technology, social and environmental issues and the widest range of ideas and viewpoints.
Darrell Gunter, EVP, CCO of Worldcrunch, will interview Jeff Israely, a former TIME magazine foreign correspondent, about how international journalism has been changing over the past decade to meet new technological and societal demands. As the founder of the Paris-based digital news outlet Worldcrunch, he has his finger on the pulse of the changes in the industry and the changing nature of an increasingly globalized and digitally-driven readership.
ASERL brings together leaders from research libraries in the region to foster a high standard of library excellence through professional development, inter-institutional resource sharing, and other important collaborations. For more than 65 years, ASERL has been a trusted home for numerous innovative programs and events that provide tremendous benefit to our membership.
