The Ithaka Report up in CommentPress

Quite often, I really love librarians, and this is one of those times. The Scholarly Publishing Office at the University of Michigan Library has ported the intriguing Ithaka Report into CommentPress to make it easier to engage with the text.

In the words of the authors, “this paper argues that a renewed commitment to publishing in its broadest sense can enable universities to more fully realize the potential global impact of their academic programs, enhance the reputations of their institutions, maintain a strong voice in determining what constitutes important scholarship, and in some cases reduce costs.” We welcome you to engage in that argument in this space.

(Also q.v. my slant on the Ithaka report — and my take on the impact of library acquisition decisions on the fate of small-press literary journals, which was on my mind when I wrote that post.)
