Discover the changes in books in this digital age

Evolving digital formats have forced libraries’ approaches to paper book collections to change in ways unforeseen even a few years ago. The Changing Book: Transition in Design, Production, and Preservation takes an insightful look at the evolution of books from its historical origins to completely digital. This visionary source examines the continuing role of the paper book, trends in print book production, and the future of the physical book. Electronic book technologies, on demand printing, book conservation, and traditions in bookmaking are discussed in detail. These superb selections of proceedings from The Changing Book Conference held in 2005 focus on the creativity and innovative ideas important to any library professional managing library collections. This resource provides numerous photographs and illustrations, and is extensively referenced.

Topics in The Changing Book: Transition in Design, Production, and Preservation include:
