Self-Publishing Indigenous Language Materials.
St. Clair, Robert N.; Busch, John; Webb, B. Joanne
Indigenous language programs that have a literacy component require reading materials. Recent advances in computer technology and certain legal changes in the publishing industry have made self-publishing such materials an easier task. This paper describes some of the steps necessary to self-publish indigenous language materials. Suggestions are offered for guidebooks on getting started in publishing, use of short-run printers, being one's own printer, and marketing. The Internet provides several types of opportunities for marketing and dissemination. The following technical aspects of self-publishing are discussed: text format and style, font style, special fonts for indigenous languages, word processing software, style consistency, copyediting and proofreading, things to do before the final pages go to press, and sending the camera-ready copy to the printer. Contains 16 references and lists of 12 useful Web sites and 3 style guides. (Author/SV)
