As readers of the Digital Publishing Services blog might recall, several of the DPS staff were involved in the Querying the Library: Digitization and Its Impact conference at Rhode Island College two years ago. Their presentation, entitled “Publishing INTI: A Suite of Services Case Study,” detailed the department’s multifaceted digitization and publication support for INTI, a Spanish-language literature journal edited by Providence College faculty member Roger Carmosino.
Following the event, the Adams Library at Rhode Island College requested proceedings from the presenters to document the conference. Most recently, ePub and iBook versions of the proceedings have been developed and published. For those unfamiliar with these formats, ePub and iBook are electronic publication formats that are optimized for mobile use. One benefit of working with these formats is that they can be media-enhanced. As a demonstration of this functionality, video recordings of the presentation have been made available either directly within the proceedings or through them via hyperlink.
We in Digital Publishing Services are grateful for the support Rhode Island College has offered to document this event and excited to see the developing usage of electronic publications within our library consortium.
