2012 List Building with Constraints
This panel will address the fundamentals of list building for acquisition editors. Junior and mid-career editors will reflect on how they go about developing their lists with an emphasis on the kinds of constraints that all editors must deal with and overcome. For instance: how do you acquire books when you don't know a field? How do you acquire books when your press is new to a field? How do you acquire books in a field where books are not a priority? How do you change the direction of your list in a field?
