  • NJ to initiate presentation Word of appreciaton for invitation & collective launch opporltunity Introduction of AB and NJ; note two others involved in project: AS, CT Comment regarding brevity of presentation
  • NJ Given we come from different domains of science & scholarship, want to share couple of illustrations of how books are being enhanced in the humanities and social sciences Quickly explain DMS site by Polity Press Note some of site features ; point out independent character of printed titles (bring one as illustration)
  • NJ Describe UM initiative fusion library & press divisions of university open access to pdf files of books Note that UM is ‘deviant case’; most university and commercial publishers do not maintain a web platform other than for selling titles Also note other forms of innovation in university press publishing, e.g. UC Press and Mark Twain Project General point : publishers are cautiously exploring, but hardly taking advantage of web functionalities / potentials
  • NJ Initial effort to prepare website for conventional schkolarly monograph Indicate what site has and does not have, e.g., no use of persistent identifiers, cq codes, search facility, integration with other related literature In some ways the site is a skeleton still awaiting enhancement (e.g., visualtions not yet included, no dynamic quality / functionality to site, no updates)
  • NJ or AB SURF call provided opportunity to ‘rethink’ previous effort, to redesign, to expand, to adapt to other publishing projects. Note some of features intended for hybrid publications Note book projects involved Note intent to construct a database to house objects of each of the book publications and provide integration (in illustrative fashion) Note emphasis on dissemination: 2 panels, workshop to test instructional materials
  • Anne from here to end
  • AB Note: this slide seems to be a duplicate of the objectives slide; it may require modification  I changed the slides a bit to distinguish, and emphasised why these things were important, what their function would be
  • We are building a hybrid… This may end up telling us a lot about the two media we are trying to bring together.
  • But hybrids can also result in just the right set of features, just the right adaptations… and under the right circumstances have a very long, happy and prosperous future…
