"Farewell to the Printed Monograph"

While attempting to find out more about "the crisis of the monograph" mentioned in our reading for yesterday's class, I found this article that talks not only about The Univeristy of Michigan's troubles, but about the issues scholarly presses everywhere are facing. The University of Michigan is proactively making the largest strides out of all the major university presses toward digital publishing. University Administrator Teresa A. Sullivan explains,"We want to put the emphasis on dissemination. And we want acquisition editors to feel that they can take risks that maybe they couldn't take before."
