The publishing value chain has been completely transformed by technology, reducing costs in some areas while adding costs in others. It has given publishers new ways to manage the value chain, both domestically and internationally, but these new technologies need support in differing ways. Infrastructure is the key.

Publishing and has become more complex than ever. Publishers need to deliver content wherever their readers are, and they are being asked to create everything online in addition to print. With so many readers switching from print to digital, it’s hard to know how and where to publish your content. Publishers need to integrate rich media to enhance the experience and engage the reader. They are seeking quick, simple, and affordable solutions.

  • New Directions in Faculty Scholarship: What Libraries Need to Know to Stay Ahead of the Game webinar ( bepress)
When: Tue, February 17, 11am – 12pm |11 am Pacific / 2pm Eastern (map)
Description: The explosion of digital forms of scholarship has greatly increased the spectrum of what faculty want to share, preserve, and organize. From multimedia to datasets, from archival documents to course materials, faculty needs for digital expertise are rapidly expanding. This changing landscape means that it is a critical time for libraries: to understand the changing nature of faculty needs, to demonstrate the full potential of its digital expertise, and to partner with faculty in supporting their work. Based on research that examines a number of exemplary faculty projects, this presentation explores some of the main drivers behind changing faculty needs. What compels faculty to come to the library for help? What comprises the main areas of faculty need? What kinds of faculty projects are the best fit for the library?
Promita Chatterji, Outreach Associate at bepress, will share what we’ve learned and provide some new tools to identify the greatest areas of faculty need on your campus.Register here:
