Exploring discovery : the front door to your library's licensed and digitized content
edited by Kenneth J. Varnum
Chicago : ALA Editions, an imprint of the American Library Association, 2016
The pace of change in recent decades has been dizzying. An index of books was a static item; discovery might require searching several places to find both the index and the item. Now the variety of materials managed and collected by individual librarys is expansive, and the concept of "discovery" can cover hundreds, thousands or even billions of items. Where is "discovery" going... and how will it change your life?

Print culture histories beyond the metropolis
edited by James J. Connolly, Patrick Collier, Frank Felsenstein, Kenneth R. Hall, and Robert G. Hall
Toronto : University of Toronto Press, [2016]
"Bringing together leading scholars of literature, history, library studies, and communications, Print Culture Histories Beyond the Metropolis rejects the idea that print culture necessarily spreads outwards from capitals and cosmopolitan cities and focuses attention to how the residents of smaller cities, provincial districts, rural settings, and colonial outposts have produced, disseminated, and read print materials. Too often print media has been represented as an engine of metropolitan modernity. Rather than being the passive recipients of print culture generated in city centres, the inhabitants of provinces and colonies have acted independently, as jobbing printers in provincial Britain, black newspaper proprietors in the West Indies, and library patrons in "Middletown," Indiana, to mention a few examples. This important new book gives us a sophisticated account of how printed materials circulated, a more precise sense of their impact, and a fuller of understanding of how local contexts shaped reading experiences."--

Printing Arab modernity : book culture and the American Press in nineteenth-century Beirut
Auji, Hala, author
Leiden ; Brill, [2016]
During the nineteenth century, the American Mission Press in Beirut printed religious and secular publications written by foreign missionaries and Syrian scholars such as Nāṣīf al-Yāzijī and Buṭrus al-Bustānī, of later nahḍa fame. In a region where presses were still not prevalent, letterpress-printed and lithographed works circulated within a larger network that was dominated by manuscript production. In this book, Hala Auji analyzes the American Press publications as important visual and material objects that provide unique insights into an era of changing societal concerns and shifting intellectual attitudes of Syria's Muslim and Christian populations. Contending that printed books are worthy of close visual scrutiny, this study highlights an important place for print culture during a time of an emerging Arab modernity.

Making literature now
Hungerford, Amy, author
Stanford, California : Stanford University Press, 2016
Introduction : writing from the rabbit hole -- Making literature now -- McSweeney's and the school of life -- Reading novels in the net -- GPS historicism -- How Jonathan Safran Foer made love -- On not reading DFW -- Afterword : present tense archive.

"This book takes us into the social networks of contemporary literary culture, examining how small-scale presses, writers, book distributors, and editors make new fiction-and make a living-in a mass market indifferent to all but a tiny slice of the literature produced today. McSweeney's, the small San Francisco-based press founded by Dave Eggers, is the book's central subject, but the story of that press serves also as portal to broader networks of contemporary literary production, a network that requires not one person-like the famous Eggers-but thousands. How does new writing emerge and find readers today? Why does one writer's work become famous while another's remains invisible? Making literature now tells the stories of the creators, editors, readers, and critics who make their living by making literature itself come alive. The book shows how various conditions--including gender, education, business dynamics, social networks, money, and the forces of literary tradition--affect the things we can choose, or refuse, to read. Amy Hungerford focuses her discussion on literary bestsellers as well as little-known traditional and digital literature from smaller presses, such as McSweeney's. She deftly matches the particular human stories of the makers with the impersonal structures through which literary reputation is made. Ranging from fine-grained ethnography to polemical argument, this book transforms our sense of how and why new literature appears--and disappears--in contemporary American culture"--

Selling Shakespeare : biography, bibliography, and the book trade
Hooks, Adam G., author
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Introduction: A life in print : toward a Shakespearean bio-bibliography -- 1. Shakespeare's poems and Shakespeare's printer : Richard Field and the narratives of Shakespearean authorship -- 2. Sweet and swaggering : Shakespeare's plays, Playfere's sermons, and their publisher Andrew Wise -- 3. 'All in one volume' : Shakespeare's quartos, the First Folio, and their printer William Jaggard -- 4. Making plays : booksellers and the bio-bibliography of Shakespeare.

"Selling Shakespeare tells a story of Shakespeare's life and career in print, a story centered on the people who created, bought, and sold books in the early modern period. The interests and investments of publishers and booksellers have defined our ideas of what is 'Shakespearean', and attending to their interests demonstrates how one version of Shakespearean authorship surpassed the rest. In this book, Adam G. Hooks identifies and examines four pivotal episodes in Shakespeare's life in print: the debut of his narrative poems, the appearance of a series of best-selling plays, the publication of collected editions of his works, and the cataloguing of those works. Hooks also offers a new kind of biographical investigation and historicist criticism, one based not on external life documents, nor on the texts of Shakespeare's works, but on the books that were printed, published, sold, circulated, collected, and catalogued under his name"--
