CHE’s AAUP report

Here is yesterday’s report on the AAUP annual meeting from the Chronicle of Higher Education.

One indication that university-press publishing has life in it yet: Many more presses have moved from talking about electronic books to producing them. On June 12, for instance, the University of Chicago Press made 1,000 of its titles available as e-books, using Adobe Digital Editions. Garrett P. Kiely, the press’s director, said he was already seeing some indications that the digital books were finding a market. He noted that other scholarly publishers, including the University of Alabama Press, the University of Iowa Press, and Utah State University Press, have recently begun to sell digital editions of books.
