Event description

Description

Is academic book production outstripping demand? Can library budgets keep pace with the ever growing book production? Will academic books become a new frontier of Open Access? Are we ready to move away from the physical codex? Will digital book formats transform arts and humanities research? Are our discovery, access and preservation systems fit for the future?

Find out more and join us for a continuing debate.

The Academic Book of the Future project was a two-year research project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Library, focusing on the current and possible future states of academic books in the changing academic, publishing and library environments. This event will launch the project’s final policy report by Dr Michael Jubb. We will also reflect on two years of research and engagement activities, led by Dr Samantha Rayner (UCL) as Principal Investigator, with the Co-Investigators Nick Canty (UCL), Professor Marilyn Deegan (KCL) and Professor Simon Tanner (KCL), and including numerous contributions across academic, librarian, publishing and bookseller communities.

The event will be introduced by Professor Andrew Thompson, CEO of the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The project team will be joined by Professor Geoffrey Crossick, Dr Frances Pinter, Professor Shearer West and the British Library’s Chief Librarian, Caroline Brazier, for a panel discussion on the issues raised in the report.
