Interrelationships among Librarians, Engineers, and Publishers in the Publication Process.
Jackson, Eugene B.
This paper advocates the involvement of librarians in the publishing process and examines the mechanics of that process. Concerns of librarians, engineers, and publishers are delineated, with examples taken from the internal and external dissemination of technical information by a major U.S. government research agency and various large industrial engineering groups. Two charts present information on the government agency's technical report procedure. There is mention of involvement in the publishing milieu on the part of library graduate students at the University of Texas at Austin, and a table listing specific student involvement is provided. The publication processes for two books--a monograph on industrial information systems coauthored by Eugene B. and Ruth L. Jackson, and a collection of essays on special librarianship edited by Jackson--are compared, and differences encountered in writing and editing works for publication are described. The paper concludes with tables listing the events leading to the publication of the two Jackson monographs. (ESR)
