AAUP 2010 Program Committee

Greg Britton, Getty Publications, Chair
Gita Manaktala, MIT Press
Paul Murphy, RAND
Leila Salisbury, University Press of Mississippi
Linda Secondari, Oxford University Press

Beginning in October 2009, the program committee developed a comprehensive agenda of sessions, plenary speakers, and roundtables on the theme of "Toward a Sustainable Future." As so many topics in 2010 relate to the ideas of building community and putting new technologies and social networking tools to work for scholarly publishers, the committee has decided to "practice what they preach." The committee launched a Facebook page that became a vibrant online community sharing links and tips in the months before AAUP 2010.
