ABPBC Seminar: Integrating Print and Online Production

September 13th, 2010

John Maxwell and Kathleen Fraser of SFU’s Master of Publishing program will introduce and demonstrate their research and development work in bridging print and online/web-based production workflows, making simultaneous publication in print and e-book formats possible. The prototype system, which brings Adobe InDesign together with the WordPress content management system, was used for SFU’s Book of MPub project this spring, and has been tested at Arsenal Pulp Press this summer with Farewell My Concubine.

The presenters:
John W. Maxwell is Assistant Professor in the Master of Publishing Program at SFU. His research and teaching focus is on the impact of digital technologies in the cultural sector. Following on a decade of professional work in document management, learning technologies, and online communities, John’s current work is focused on the evolution of practical publication technologies, the emergence of digital genres, and the history of digital media.

Kathleen Fraser is a Master of Publishing student whose research has focused on the intersection of technological development and editorial practices, and on making web-first publishing pragmatically and financially accessible for small presses. She helped develop a web-first editorial and production workflow to produce The Book of MPub, and, during her internship at Arsenal Pulp Press, integrated it into the company’s existing workflow. Kathleen is the editor at Hur Publishing and will join Caitlin Press this October.
