Journalist's Toolbox

Curious about Clubhouse and other social media platforms? Figuring out how to make a proper FOIA request? Snooping for search engine optimization tips? Look no further than Journalist's Toolbox. Launched by journalism professor Mike Reilley in 1996, and since a project of the Society of Professional Journalists, the site serves as an information hub for those in the field. Reilley continues to update the site (sometimes weekly, sometimes daily) and it is now home to more than 150 pages and thousands of tools available under a Creative Commons license. For example, the home page highlights a COVID-19 reporting collection. Here, journalists covering the pandemic will find more than 500 useful resources, ranging from safety protocols to statistics. Other resources are cataloged topically in the left-hand column. To keep up with the latest additions to the site, click "What's New" in the top-right corner, sign up for the newsletter, or subscribe to the YouTube channel (links to do so are found on the home page). Readers can also keep up with Reilley and the Toolbox on Twitter, @journtoolbox.
