A Digital Starting Point for Preserving News
by Barbara Quint
Many libraries—academic, public, and private—and other "memory organizations," such as museums, historical societies, commercial publishers, and the like, have started taking responsibility for the digital archiving of newspapers and born-digital news sources. Commercial vendors such as ProQuest have also taken leadership roles in this area. But what needs doing still needs more doers. The challenges are extreme, but losing any part of the record of human history shames the information professional community.

Five Ways to Get Your Book Published
by Brandi Scardilli
In the era of user-generated content, anyone can write a book and get it published, whether it's on librarianship, Big Data, or data scientists. There are dozens of companies to help authors find the right editorial services, design assistance, printing, marketing, and distribution for their works. These days, authors don't need a huge publishing house. One of the best ways to get published and get involved in the process is to sign up with a do-it-yourself (DIY) publisher. Be prepared: Though these publishers charge authors for specific services, you'll still end up doing most of the work yourself. But on the plus side, you'll retain creative control of your book.
