Reading Publisher Catalogs

Remember Tom Leonhardt’s ATG columns about publishers’ catalogs? I miss them. I know that printed publishers’ catalogs are an endangered species but I still like them better than emails, so I was interested to read this article in the Chronicle of Higher Education (June 26, 2009). “A Turn in the Spotlight: How Publishers Pick Books to Showcase in Catalogs,” by Jennifer Howard. This is about university press catalogs and how the “lead position” is determined.
