Staying Alive: The challenges Facing University Presses in the Dawn of the Digital Age

By Whitney Simmons

Abstract

This master\u27s thesis examines the pressures being placed upon university press publishers in the United States. These pressures, which include economic trouble, decrease university support, and new developments in technology, are compelling presses to explore the field of digital publishing to both help relieve the financial burden on the press and keep with the scholarship needs of the university\u27s scholars and students. The ability of a press to transition to digital operations will depend on their ability to communicate with their university and to also collaborate with other university presses to create a shared digital infrastructure
