Over the past few years presses have dramatically changed the ways that we create and sell our products—from establishing XML workflows and expanding e-book production and sales to taking on multimedia and digital projects and working with consortia. Consequently, many press employees have experienced dramatic shifts in their responsibilities, who they work with both inside and outside the press. How have new digital initiatives transformed workflow patterns within the university press? What new overlaps of interests, needs, and responsibilities have arisen? What are the challenges of working across departments or divisions? And what are the rewards? How can managers address the needs of employees who bridge different departments or divisions at the press? This panel will offer strategies, insights, and practical advice for adapting to transformations in the workplace.
