AAUP 2013 kicked off yesterday in Boston and continues through Saturday. Among the first day announcements:
-The release of the Digital Book Publishing in the AAUP Community Spring 2013 report:
"AAUP has continued to survey its member presses about the extent to which various digital publishing strategies are being adopted within the community. The 2013 Survey updates information gathered annually since 2010. In addition to gathering data about e-book revenue, digital marketing and discovery strategies, and format and channel availability , we also asked respondents to share their opinions about major concerns or hurdles they are facing, and to tell us more about their presses’ e-book goals.
-The 2013 Book, Jacket and Journal Show.
"Judging for the 2013 AAUP Book, Jacket and Journal Show took place January 24-25 at the AAUP Central Office in New York City. Approximately 273 books, 331 jacket and cover design entries, and 4 journals were entered. 51 books and 44 jackets/covers were chosen by the jurors as the very best examples from this pool of excellent design.
The 2013 Book, Jacket, & Journal Show will premiere at the AAUP Annual Meeting in Boston, June 20-22, 2013. Afterward, the show will be exhibited at member presses around the country from September 2013 through May 2014. Forms to request the show for exhibit at your campus or institution will be available this summer. Contact Kim Miller with any questions about the show's schedule or how to request an exhibit."
