Dictionaries and Other Book-shaped Objects

Erin McKean, Chief Consulting Editor, American Dictionaries, Oxford University Press

Date: Wednesday, June 20
Time: 4:00pm - 4:30pm
Location: Regency Ballroom

Dictionaries are one of the oldest information-delivery technologies still used today ... but are they (and other reference books) delivering information in the ways that users want and need? How can we find out? (And what do we do if we find out things we don't want to hear?) Are your information-delivery products and other book-shaped objects giving the users what they want, or just what you want them to have? Remember: "if you do what you've always done, you get what you've always got" doesn't apply to publishing.
