What’s Right With Publishing


What’s Right With Publishing | Inside Higher Ed

I get so tired of the “doom and gloom” of the Chicken Littles who repeatedly predict the end of the world as we know it.  It is nice to read a more balanced yet optimistic look at the industry that is at the heart of librarianship.  As I’ve been reviewing the issues of this field, especially those of the last 3 years and those of 100 years ago, I find that we have had the same worries for some time.  People aren’t reading, publishing is too competitive and libraries are on their way out.  Barbara Fister provides a bit of backdrop to bring the publishing industry down to earth, and she provides some important developments that should enable us to tune out or at least tone down both the librarian- and publisher-CLs out there.
