It Was SRO for Scholarly Publishing!

As keynote speaker for the Scholarly Publishing track Michael Keller, Stanford University Librarian & Publisher, Highwire & Stanford University Press gave a fascinating review of scholarly publishing issues including:

• Challenges to Big Deals and some retreats by publishers

• Increasing customer awareness (involving faculty) of issues

• New entrants in e-publishing

• Developments of institutional repositories

A rhetorical question – are print versions becoming ephemeral, he asked? (Something to think about!)
