Have you wondered what colleagues mean when they say, “Books are so 20th century?” This panel explores the exciting possibilities and challenges raised by digital publishing. Short panel presentations examine various digital platforms such as Scalar, the pros and cons of publishing digitally, finding technical support at UMass and the Five Colleges, how to get started, and much more. There will be ample time for Q&A and discussion, and a light lunch will be served. This event is co-sponsored by ISSR and Instructional Innovations, UMass Amherst IT.
Janice Irvine is Professor of Sociology at UMass Amherst, and is currently writing a book on the open source digital platform, Scalar.
