Alexei Taylor & Marcos Steuernagel
This workshop will look at the current opportunities and challenges in digital scholarly publishing from the experience of the born-digital books being developed by the Hemispheric Institute. We will offer an in-depth look at Scalar, the digital books platform used by Hemi, and will explore the unique tools it has to offer.
