Why infolit is important for journalists

A blog post describing a librarian's response to a journalism academic who wanted journalism students to understand why "research" was important. Joyce Garczynski (Towson University’s Assistant University Librarian for Development & Communications) uses the ACRL Framework in the process of explaining this, and they did their own threshold concepts investigation to find the students' "stuck places"..
There is a recording of a panel session that includes Garczynski talking about this, I think (caveat, I haven't listened to the recording, but as it's on the ACRL site I'm sure their description isn't fake news...)
