Diderot Goes Digital Why Authority, Comprehensibility, and Utility in Reference Sources Still Matter

via email

In an environment that offers many opportunities to acquire free digital information, what is a reference publisher like World Book doing to ensure that its content is authoritative, comprehensible, and useful? Why do these characteristics still matter?

In this hour-long Booklist webinar, World Book’s Editor-in Chief, Paul Kobasa, explains how World Book has progressed from an annual publishing cycle to a daily cycle while maintaining its exceptional editorial standards. He will suggest that World Book and libraries are invested in a parallel effort to provide access to reference material and to ensure the material is both credible and creditable. Kobasa will be joined in the webinar by other members of the World Book editorial staff. World Book is the publisher of theWorld Book Encyclopedia and World Book Web.
