  9. 9. Monograph Crisis • The Future of Scholarly Publishing o “Library budgets for monographs in the humanities have declined steadily, in relative and sometimes in absolute terms, leading to proportional reductions in the number of scholarly books sold.” o “Subsidies for university presses have also declined as operational costs have risen, often placing the publishers under great pressure to make profit-based decisions. “ o “Even as they face growing economic problems, university presses are receiving ever more submissions as a result of increased expectations for promotion and tenure in our disciplines and at our institutions of higher learning.” Text via Ad Hoc Committee on the Future of Scholarly Publishing http://www.mla.org/resources/documents/issues_scholarly_pub/repview_future_pub 3/5/2014 9
