2011 Mellon Publishing Initiatives: Fostering a Culture of Collaboration
Grants from the Mellon Foundation have brought university presses and institutions together to collaborate in unprecedented ways. This session will feature insights and lessons learned from presses who have participated in these Mellon initiatives. Panelists will reflect on successes and challenges; possibilities for project sustainability once grant funds have expired; and what the university press community at large might learn from this kind of collaboration.
