University of Manchester Library and Manchester University Press: Does the Academic Book have a Future?

Posted on Updated on

As part of Academic Book Week celebrations, The University of Manchester Library and Manchester University Press would like to invite you to attend a specially organised panel event where selected members have come together to discuss the academic book and answer questions such as ‘what is an academic book?’, ‘what does it contribute?’ and ‘what is its future?‘.

Academic books have been subject to a number of dramatic changes in recent years and yet books continue to make a fundamental contribution to scholarly communication within many disciplines. This panel event will include members from the four main groups that can dictate the future of the academic book – researchers, librarians, publishers and booksellers – who will try to piece together a coherent understanding of the academic book and its future.

To register for the panel, please visit: http://www.manchesteruniversitypress.co.uk/panel-event-academic-book-future/

Our Academic Engagement Team are also hosting a range of pop up events across campus – 23-27 January – where we will be inviting academics to talk around key themes relating to the academic book and The University of Manchester Library resources and services.
