Our corrections policy is pretty simple - we will try to correct any article as soon as we can verify that a correction is needed. Corrections frequently come in comments, and also in emails to the writer and the editor. We recommend that, at a minimum, anyone with a correction to make should editor [at] tcdailyplanet [dot] net (email the editor)—this is the quickest way to get action.

MediaShift, a project of the Knight Foundation, published an article from Scott Rosenberg with some useful suggestions:

There's really just a small number of things any news website needs to do if it wants to handle corrections and error reports responsibly:

  • Append a note to any article that's been corrected, explaining the change;
  • Keep a list of these changes, linking to the corrected articles, at a fixed location on the site;
  • Post a brief corrections policy, with information about how readers can report errors they find;
  • Make sure that your corrections listing page and your corrections policy (whether they're on the same or different pages) are part of your site navigation -- they should be accessible by one click from any page on your site.

(Photo by Bill Huntzicker) The Southeast Library, designed by the late Ralph Rapson to be a credit union, has operated in its Dinkytown building since 1967.

Dinkytown could soon lose its public library, but Hennepin County will ultimately decide if that's worth it, or if they should replace or upgrade it.
