Save the Date: The Digital Word – A Conference, Thursday, October 8, 2009
On October 8, 2009 ASHP/CML and the New Media Lab will host The Digital Word, a day-long national conference on the future of academic publishing and the far reaching implications and possibilities of digital technology for textbooks, scholarly journals, and academic monographs. The conference, to be held at The Graduate Center, will feature roundtable discussions including publishers, scholars, teachers, and new media practitioners and funders who will address past successes and failures as well as ideas for future practice. The goal of the event is to provide common ground and the basis for on-going efforts to use new media in inclusive, affordable, and effective ways to engage in and disseminate scholarly work.
