Newspaper morgues used to be the repositories of  each publication’s institutional history as well as the librarians who painstakingly clipped and indexed stories for posterity. Today? The libraries of most large newspapers and many magazines have been slashed by half or more and, in many cases, shuttered entirely. Yet hundreds of librarians have managed to adapt—focusing on computer-assisted reporting, data retrieval and the like and a few libraries-within-newsrooms are even thriving. Some are even looking to their morgues to produce revenue by licensing or syndicating the newspaper’s archived content or doing custom research.
