Web Sites for Reporters

The Specialized Information Publishers Association has suggested that these are web sites to add to your ‘Must See’ List for reporters… which has a lot of use for libraries to know where these folks hang out. It’s an interesting view into the research world of other information pros.
UCG Editorial Director Lisa Getter suggests these Websites as part of the Internet reference file every reporter should keep:
Social Networks
Search Engines
http: //
Blog Searches
Court Records
Sites Every Reporter Should Know (inmate locator) (old web site pages) (statistics) (phone numbers) (government phones) (non-profits) (SEC info) (backgrounding guide) (great people finder) (everything you need) (domain lookup) (domain lookup) (property records) (research site)
E-tools (alphabetize your lists) (inflation calculator) (distance calculator) (social networking and other Web 2.0 sites)
Training Sites

  2. This is a great list. In addition to these, I would add Courtport is a brand new site in beta that allows reporters (and other professional researchers) to access public records (with a particularly comprehensive focus on court records) very quickly and inexpensively.
