So, my scholarly and librarian friends, have you read The Ithaka Report? I have mixed feelings. I feel ooky about the idea that the university press exists only to to supply content for libraries and, while I think that libraries and university presses do have common ground, their goals are very different. Libraries want information to be freely and widely available. University presses clearly want to at least break even during the dissemination of information.
But it was stunning to see how negative the attitudes towards scholarly publishing were.
