Digital Publishing and ProQuest

If you missed The Futures Initiative's open session with Austin McLean, ProQuest‘s Director of Scholarly Communication and Dissertations Publishing, last week, the video is now available online. The discussion built on questions raised during the recent HASTAC/Futures Initiative event What Is a Dissertation?

The event focused on questions such as: What is a digital "book"? What does it mean to publish and read online in a time when more and more people read on their devices? How does this effect/enhance scholarly writing? How do digital tools and platforms address the shift in the way knowledge is being acquired and disseminated in the classroom, nationally and internationally?

There was a considerable conversation going on around the livestream, and still continuing via the Twitter hashtags #remixthediss and #remixscholar.
