    You are already well aware that you live in a wondrous time -- machines prepare your food, process your words, and lull you to sleep at night.  Not to mention, you can watch professional baseball, professional football, professional basketball, and professional hockey -- all on the same night, on virtually any device, at the touch of a button. 

    Also at the touch of a button, the Beatles play music in your ear.  Touch it again, you've got Beethoven.  Touch it again, and it's William Flippin' Shakespeare.  

    Truly, it's a wonder you ever actually read anything anymore.  Especially now that robots can read pages to you -- maybe while you're watching sports, or driving your car, or typing spreadsheets, or painting your toenails, or whatever it is you do all day.  Meanwhile, you're starting to notice that text-to-speech technology is becoming a new "thing" -- on the Internets, on your websites, and in your textbooks.

    Tempted to at least try out the trend phenomenon, you dutifully open the test pages below, and then you simply/bravely click the "listen" button.  And while you're at it, you may as well vote on what you'd prefer to call the dis-emobodied voice who reads to you, right?  (If only there were a quick and easy ballot for such a fake election.)  In any case, you're going to be sure to catch up to your local and friendly digital publisher with questions or concerns about text-to-speech..

     But before you listen (and by "listen" you mean really listen, man) you first may want to steel yourself, because...well....
    ...because there's a good chance your already-wondrous ebooks-related life may never be the same.

  • Library Publishing Directory, 2015
    Author(s): Library Publishing Coaltion (LPC)

    The second edition of the Library Publishing Directory provides a snapshot of the publishing activities of well over 100 academic and research libraries, including information about the number and types of publications they produce, the services they offer authors, how they are staffed and funded, and the future plans of institutions that are engaged in this emerging field. In documenting the breadth and depth of activities in this field, this resource aims to articulate the unique value of library publishing; establish it as a significant and growing community of practice; and to raise its visibility within a number of stakeholder communities, including administrators, funding agencies, other scholarly publishers, librarians, and content creators.

    Specifically it is hoped that this Directory will:

    • Introduce all readers to the emerging field of library publishing and help articulate its unique characteristics as a distinctive "publishing field."
    • Facilitate collaboration among library publishers and other publishing entities, especially the university presses and learned societies that share their values. •
    • Alert authors of scholarly content to a range of potential publishing partners dedicated to supporting their experimentation with new forms of scholarly communication and open access business models.

    The Directory is also available Open Access in several electronic formats through
