IRE Resource Center

The IRE Resource Center is a major research library containing more than 25,000 investigative stories — both print and broadcast. Add to that more than 3,500 tipsheets from our national conferences, Watchdog Workshops, and on-the-road training on how to cover specific beats or do specific stories. IRE gives you resources that no reporter or editor should be without.

The Resource Center is partially supported by the Jane Pulliam Trust, The Florence and John Schumann Foundation and the John S. & James. L. Knight Foundation.
