Northwestern Journal Goes Digital

TQ 134 Cover.jpegNorthwestern sent out a press release last week announcing, among other things, that Northwestern University Press's literary journal TriQuarterly will forgo their print editions for an online-only format starting next year. Says Sarah Pritchard, Charles Deering McCormick University Library, "This move will align publishing efforts more closely with the University's academic enterprise while at the same time expanding electronic dissemination and public access to the wonderful literature and essays that are published in TriQuarterly." The conversion to digital seems to also have come at the hands of the hard economic times: "After a year of significant economic setbacks, the Press has undergone a careful review. The University has reaffirmed its commitment to the dissemination of scholarship as part of its academic mission. The Press will be a more efficient operation and we will deepen our alliances with the University's academic programs while moving forward with the delivery of content in a digital format. There undoubtedly will be challenges, but it also should be a time of exciting opportunities."
