Managing and Staffing Special Projects
Moderator: Laura Westlund, Managing Editor and Development Officer, University of Minnesota Press
Panelists: Mark Simpson-Vos, Acquisitions Editor, University of North Carolina Press; Karen Copp, Design and Production Manager, University of Iowa Press; Tina Weiner, Publishing Director, Yale University Press
Description: As much as we might relish a break from routine and look forward to a new, interesting kind of book to work on, special publishing projects such as encyclopedias, exhibition catalogs, textbooks, cookbooks, and even children’s books present particular challenges. In this panel, staff members shared their experiences working on out-of-the-ordinary books, including matters of staffing, procedures, resources, and schedules.
