Scholarly Publishing: Books, Journals, Publishers, and Libraries in the Twentieth Century.
Abel, Richard E., Ed.; Newlin, Lyman W., Ed.
Against the Grain, Spec Iss 2002
In this volume, publishers, booksellers, journal dealers, and librarians share their views on libraries and publishing. While the information/knowledge transfer process in the entire span of the twentieth century was to be addressed by the contributors, the principal focus of every author was to be the last five decades in which the most profound, intractable, and portentous developments in the conjoined worlds of the book, the journal, information technology, and the library occurred. Chapters include: "The Growth of Printed Literature in the Twentieth Century" (Albert Henderson); "Introduction--The Change of Book and Journal Infrastructure: Two Publishers, Consolidation, and Niche Publishers" (Richard E. Abel); "Part One--Technology in Publishing: A Century of Progress" (Peter Adams); "Part Two--Differentiation of Publishing by Class of Publication" (Richard Zeldin); "Growth and Change in Trade Publishing: What I Learned at the Library" (Sam Vaughan); "Growth and Change in Trade Book Publishing: What I Learned from the Numbers" (Stephanie Oda); "Textbook Publishing" (Robert J. R. Follett); "University Press Publishing in the United States" (Peter Givler); "The Creative Role of the Professional or STM Publisher" (John Francis Dill); "Diversity and the Growth of Serious/Scholarly/Scientific Journals" (Albert Henderson); "From Bibliotheque to Omnitheque" (Allen B. Veaner); "Development of Public Libraries" (Barbara Carol Dean); "The Growth of Scholarly and Scientific Libraries" (Hendrik Edelman); "Appearance and Growth of Computer and Electronic Products in Libraries" (Ralph M. Shoffner); "The Economic Crisis in Libraries; Causes and Effects" (Michael Gorman); "The Impact of the Library Budget Crisis on Scholarly Publishing" (Jack G. Goellner); and "The Place of Scholarly and Scientific Libraries in an Increasingly and More Widespread Competitive Information Knowledge Marketplace" (Charles Hamaker). A conclusion is given (Richard E. Abel and Lyman W. Newlin), followed by a Coda (Katina Strauch and Bruce Strauch). Includes an index. (AEF)
