Content: The Ball State Daily News Stylebook and Reporter's Guide ,-... I Compiled by Carolina Procter May 2001
Editor's note
This stylebook is a resource for Daily News reporters. It is intended to establish guidelines on identifying people, buildings, landmarks and departments on campus. It is also intended to provide background and identification guidelines for campus events, locations and organizations. Organizational flow charts for important administrative offices are included in the back to help reporters look for authoritative sources. A section identifying useful sources in state and local government is also included. Daily News reporters should still refer to the Associated Press stylebook for general spelling, grammar and identification rules. The Daily News stylebook provides guidelines specific to Ball State. 2000-01 Daily News staff members, the Bracken Library Archives and Special Collections staff, and the Ball State administrative staff aided in the compilation of this stylebook. Special thanks to Daily News adviser T.J. Hemlinger.
