Rick Anderson at the Scholarly Kitchen has an article that describes the dilemma faced by academic research libraries when buying new books. Do they buy books based on quality or relevance? Anderson creates a matrix model to illustrate this dilemma. Anderson currently believes that while quality still matters, it is ultimately trumped by relevance. Libraries are now being guided by the interests of their customers. Anderson adds that "the library exists to facilitate new scholarship - and new scholarship requires access to more than just what is good and true."

The Junto has a fantastic blog post written by Katy Lasdow discussing the future of academic journals in rapidly changing world. This article dovetails nicely with Michael Hattem's recent post entitled Rip Van Digital. Lasdow 's article specifically addresses the future of the Journal of the Early Republic. The new editors of the Journal created a list of 12 questions that were addressed at a recent seminar to help them plan for the future. Some of the questions were focused on Historiography and others addressed newer digital challenges. The digital questions would be particularly relevant to almost any historical journal. Digitization represents new opportunities and threats to academic journals. How each journal adapts to changing circumstances will most likely determine their survival. Check out this post to better understand the troubling landscape journals face.
