Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy
by Kathleen Fitzpatrick
Publisher: NYU Press 2009
Number of pages: 254

Facing these issues head-on, Kathleen Fitzpatrick focuses on the technological changes--especially greater utilization of internet publication technologies, including digital archives, social networking tools, and multimedia--necessary to allow academic publishing to thrive into the future.
