There is currently all too much evidence that the culture of the book in American higher education is in crisis. For example, how do we balance the rising cost of producing and publishing books with shrinking university presses and library budgets? How do we deal with the rising cost of textbooks, which by one estimation has risen at four times the rate of inflation over the past fifteen years? How will the academy emerge from this crisis? In this paper, I’d like to briefly consider one proposed solution: namely, that academia shift from being a fundamentally print culture to becoming a fundamentally digital culture.
