Book Business helped celebrate University Press Week by asking the directors of six university presses What do you feel is the best way to steer a university press successfully into the future in this age of rapid technological change? The resulting report offers opinions about the future from Alison Mudditt, Director, University of California Press;Leila W. Salisbury, Director, University Press of Mississippi; Peter Dougherty, Director, Princeton University Press; Darrin Pratt, Director, University Press of Colorado; Jim McCoy, Director, University of Iowa Press; and Meredith Babb, Director, University Press of Florida.
Editor’s note: This article is a nice compliment to the recent Charleston Conference plenary session entitled The Twenty-First Century University Press: Assessing the Past, Envisioning the Future that featured Leila Salisbury, Alison Mudditt, and Douglas Armato, Director of the University of Minnesota Press. Viewing the video of this plenary session and reading the article will give you some real insight into the future of the university press.
