Speakers - Charleston Conference | Charleston Conference -
Help me not be mad but instead positive and constructive. Certainly we know women who have opinions about issues in book and serial acquisitions to suggest to the conference directors. Please list them here and I will send the email with names for them to consider. - Marie from Bookmarklet
well, my first thought was Jenica, but I don't think that would work :) Amy Buckland? Barbara Fister? - ~Courtney F
Who is Gah? - Joe
Great interview today with Frances Pinter of Knowledge Unlatched: Liza Daly of Safari Books Online. Melanie Schlosser. Maura Smale. Allison Brown (Library Publishing Toolkit, SUNY Geneseo). Patricia Uttaro, also of Library Publishing Toolkit. - RepoRat
Barbara, Pat, or Pamela from the Lever Initiative: - RepoRat
Kate Pitcher, interim director at SUNY Geneseo, who could speak to the SUNY Open Textbooks, Library Publishing Toolkit, and their decade-long institutional shift from collection building to resource sharing. - Jenica
Sue Polanka of No Shelf Required? (Haven't heard her, though). - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Kathleen Fitzpatrick of MLA, though I don't know, has she spoken there before? - RepoRat
Maria Bonn. Meredith Kahn because - RepoRat
Wonderful ideas, thank you. Any other suggestions? I will send the email before I leave for the day. - Marie
Well, I would be mad *and* constructive about this :) I would add Shana Kimball who works for the New York Public Library and Unknowledge Unlatched and was previously at U of Mich: - copystar
email sent. - Marie
Thanks for this! - copystar
yes, thank you. - RepoRat
Thank you Marie! - Galadriel C.
Wow, two of the committee already wrote back, thanking me (us) for the suggestions. They'd like me to now put together topics/formats for these speakers. Uh, CAN DO. I'm thinking broad strokes here: Alternative publishing mechanisms (panel or single presenter); Publication length considerations (given Maize and SAGE's new 100 Questions series, it seems that shorter monographs are on the rise) (panel). What else would you suggest? - Marie
The elephant in the room is usually reward mechanisms, whether credit or tenure/promotion. Fitzpatrick could certainly speak to that; so could anybody working on OA monographs. - RepoRat
Lettie Conrad at SAGE is fantastic on discoverability and related issues. - Roger Schonfeld
Palgrave has been pushing their Pivot monographs, in the vein of shorter publications. I think Springer might be considering something similar. - Holly's favorite Anna
Morgan and Claypool has had short monographs for some time. Also from Oxford, - Joe
More great ideas. Thanks, LSW! I'm headed back to email to share with them. - Marie
Late brainstorm: Caroline Edwards, OLH is pretty dang ambitious. - RepoRat
i second Caroline Edwards! - jambina
Just a quick note of thanks for all your help. They're moving our ideas forward to figure out where to insert them into the schedule. - Marie
Well done, Marie! - Jenica
Marie wins the internet today! - RepoRat
