Symposium: The University as Publisher

The University as Publisher
November 1, 2007, 1:00-3:00pm
Seaborg Room, The Faculty Club

With the advent of electronic publishing, the scholarly communication landscape at universities has become increasingly diverse. University "publications" not only include those of the university presses and society journals but can also include forms as diverse as preprints, digital library collections, databases, personal webpages, and lecture webcasts. The discussions will consider the possibilities that the academic community, in some structure, could take over essentially many, if not all, aspects of scholarly publishing. This is a complex issue and one that can profit from the attention of persons who have comprehensive experience with university and pan-university organizations, as well as the nature of and needs for scholarly publication.

This event is part of the CSHE research project funded by the A.W. Mellon Foundation on The Future of Scholarly Communication, which is under the direction of C. Judson King and Diane Harley.
