It is structured by the existence of a plurality of fields which have their own distinctive properties and by the existence of networks and organizations of various kinds which operate in one or more of these fields.” John B. Thompson, Books in the Digital Age (Polity, 2005), p. 38

    • FUTURE PROSPECTS
    • PLANS FOR THE FUTURE • Expansion of campus publishing services with more systematic cost-recovery. Conferences offer a special opportunity. • More support for new models of publication, e.g., better capacity to handle multimedia and links with data. • Move up the value chain from technology and science areas where we have established relationships through our informal publishing activities. E.g., books in civil engineering. • Promote larger scale opportunities for library/press collaboration.
    • WHAT HAPPENS IF WE SCALE THIS UP? » Ca. 130 organizations. » Focus on formal, peerreviewed publications. » Sales income is primary source of funding. • • • • • » Ca. 110 organizations. » Focus on informal, lightlyreviewed publications. » Institutional subsidy is primary source of funding. Unique positioning on campuses, close to the authors and users of information. Shared belief in the importance of maximizing access to scholarly information. Both oriented toward construction of “unique collections” and “distinctive lists.” Track record of collaboration across as well as within institutions. Priorities not dictated by financially-motivated shareholders.
