This seminar examines the effects of technology on publishing and
scholarship in the 1990s, as well as the economics of electronic
scholarly publishing. We will consider the impact of technology _and_
profits on the relationships between publishers and scholars. This
seminar will benefit:
 
     o    Publishers with electronic publishing programs who want to
          learn more about the effects of technology on scholarship.
 
     o    Publishers considering electronic publication who are
          concerned about the economics of electronic publishing and
          the market demand for electronic formats.
 
     o    Scholars and librarians who are concerned about the effect
          of technology and profits on the scholarly mission.
 
     o    Anyone interested in learning about the future of
          scholarship and scholarly communication in the electronic
          age.
