Archives: Re-using Past Content for Fun and Profit


Wake up, write some news. Next day, do it all over again.

It’s true, the word “new” is three quarters of the word “news.” But what if there was a way to take some of what we’ve built before and occasionally re-purpose it? Maybe even make some money from it?

On Thursday, Sept. 18, from 1 to 3 p.m., Debbie Galant of the NJ News Commons at Montclair State’s Center for Cooperative Media and Josh Stearns of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation will discuss strategic ways to use news archives. They’ll present best practices and creative ideas for re-use and monetizing archieves — and brainstorm with participants.

Free. Join in person in Schmitt Hall Room 311 or remotely through Zoom videoconference. Tickets and videoconference instructions on Eventbrite.
