Humanities Roundtable 2021 — The Monograph in an Evolving Humanities
Ecosystem <>

Wednesday October 20, 12.00 - 4.00pm EDT (Canada/USA)

For many in the humanities, the monograph -- whether published
traditionally or as an open access title -- is the single most important
deliverable. So, what — if anything — has changed in the production and
delivery of a monograph? There is a wider array of formats but is the
production workflow dramatically different now? What about licensing
arrangements? Discovery and resource-sharing? This full day program offers
an opportunity for professionals working in the humanities to come together
to discuss this most critical form of output. Confirmed speakers include: Lisa
M. Bayer, AUP President (2021-22), University of Georgia Press; Paula Krebs,
Modern Language Association; and Liz Krznarich, DataCite.
