The Audio and Audio-Visual Academic Book of the Future: A Symposium

  • Foyle Room - The Conservation Studios The British Library, 96 Euston Road London NW1 2DB (map)

This symposium continues an investigation into the use of audio and audio-visual resources in the academic book. The project is being undertaken by the AHRC funded Academic Book of the Future and British Library Sound Archive.
The symposium will bring together researchers from many disciplines as well as curators, librarians, publishers and copyright experts working in the fields of academic research, output and publishing.
The event is a talking shop around some of the questions outlined below –

  • What is the current state of academic publishing with audio and audio-visual content?
  • What might be possible with audio and audio-visual content in the academic texts in future?
  • How do/will academic outputs utilising audio and audio-visual content impact publishers and libraries?
  • Could changes in academic publishing to incorporate audio and audio-visual content actually influence the direction of academic research?

For further details about the project overall, visit the British Library blog.
