ATG Media Announces the Charleston Briefings: Trending Topics for Information Professionals
Charleston, South Carolina: ATG Media is proud to announce the launch of the all new Charleston Briefings: Trending Topics for Information Professionals. The Briefings will be a series of short books on the topic of innovation in the world of libraries and scholarly communication. The default format for the Briefings is an open access e-book made available through Michigan Publishing’s e-book hosting platform at www.charlestonbriefings.com. We will also offer the option to purchase via print on demand.
The intended audience for the Briefings is the same audience that attends the Charleston Conference: librarians, publishers, entrepreneurs in information technology, vendors and consultants. The series will offer timely, readable, and focused treatments of topics of significance to practitioners in these fields. The purpose of the series is to offer the reader a useful overview that will allow them to engage more effectively with new trends and innovations in their industry.
“Charleston Briefings: Trending Topics for Information Professionals is a thought-provoking series of brief books concerning innovation in the sphere of libraries, publishing, and technology in scholarly communication,” says Matthew Ismail, series Editor in Chief. “The briefings, growing out of the vital conversations characteristic of the Charleston Conference and Against the Grain, will offer valuable insights into the trends shaping our professional lives and the institutions in which we work.”
Katina Strauch, Publisher and Owner, remarks, “So many emerging topics that need to be explored can get lost in the blur of too much. We wanted a great vehicle for short, pithy, readable discussions of hot topics and innovations. There are so many exciting developments today. By offering either open access or inexpensive alternatives for print and e-book formats, we can highlight some of these emerging topics through the considerable expertise of these talented authors while promoting professional growth of our readers.”
