There are significant initiatives at many campuses to invest in the digital humanities. While DH has become a proxy for a lot of different issues, as humanities publishers, it's becoming more and more likely that we will need to expand the capacity for what it is we can publish. DH scholars may continue to write long-form text, but more and more often it will be embedded with DH features such as multimedia files, spatial mapping, data sets, archives, and social sandboxes. How will we publish these? How will these affect the work of editorial, marketing, production, and other staff? What types of collaborations will presses need in order to "publish" these new multimodal books? Will these books be digital-only? This panel will be light on presentations and heavy on Q&A and interactivity, so bring your ideas. We encourage you to tweet questions and comments in advance to #AAUP14DH
