Chronicle Chronicles

The February 17 Chronicle just arrived in my mailbox . . . . There were two interesting articles - one on the digital project about American author Herman Melville. It's from the University of Virginia Press and can be found here and allows the reader to follow Melville through the drafting and editing of that text. It points to how the web can allow the reader to follow more than one linear track - if they choose to do so.

The article, "Leaving the Village," discusses how professors need to worry about writing for a wider audience and addresses the continuing challenges facing academic publishing - an industry which can no longer serve as the promotion machine for universities. It will be interesting to see the changes in the traditional view to this view even in the next ten years.

You're in this week's Kansas Blogger's Roundup. But I'm looking for blogs to host upcoming carnivals. Please let me know if you're interested. Thanks. Lyn from Bloggin' Outloud (now on hiatus from blogging)
