Against the Grain V35#3

Bring on the sunshine!  The weather has finally caught up with the calendar here after a cooler-than-usual spring, thank goodness. 

This June issue of ATG, guest edited by the awesome Martha Sedgwick (VP of Innovation, Research and Learning at Sage Publishing) and Kimberley Simpson (Head of Brand Marketing at Technology from Sage) is especially eloquent as it looks at the changing future of the library and gosh is it changing!  We have articles by Steven Witt (University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and Editor of IFLA Journal), Danielle Duca (Head of Product Innovation at Sage Publishing), Raymond Pun (Alder Graduate School of Education), Matthew Weldon (Technology from Sage), Kimberly Simpson (Technology from Sage), and Tony Zanders (SkillType).  We also have the final installment of a three-part series on retractions, “To Err is Human,” by Daniel Dotson (The Ohio State University).  And there’s a Special Report from Lesley Montgomery, Catalog Librarian from Tulane University’s Technical Services Department, on content analysis to promote unbiased resources.  (See more about this good news in Rumors!)

We have two exciting interviews in this issue:  Darrell Gunter (Gunter Media Group) hosts a conversation with Paul Gerbino (Creative Licensing International) on his company’s new name and rebranding from Triumvirate Content Consultants.  And Leah Hinds and Tom Gilson conducted an “ATG Interview” with Matthew Ismail, Editor in Chief of the Charleston Briefings and Owner/Founder of Dost Meditation.  I guarantee you’ll learn something about each of these fascinating people by reading their interviews!

The always-astute Jim O’Donnell brings us “A Lesson from the Middle Ages about Digital Preservation” in this issue’s Back Talk column.  He talks about lessons learned with the digitization of Patrologia Latina by Chadwick-Healy in the 1990s. 

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy this issue!  Thanks to all of our contributors, featured authors, and especially Martha and Kimberley our guest editors.  Enjoy the sunshine!  And I say welcome to summer!

Love, Yr.Eds.

Tea Time With Katina And Leah

I have noticed that Artificial Intelligence  is  thrust on us at  times that we don’t need to use it. Has that happened to you? I was interested to see on Publishing Perspectives that Elsevier has done a study (Insights2024:Attitudes Towards AI) of researchers-writers...
