    Abstract:
      In 2004, Beacon Press will complete 150 years of continuous book publishing. To mark this important anniversary, Beacon retained author Susan Wilson to research the history of the press in archives and through extensive interviews. What follows is one section of the chapbook history, a narrative of Beacon's Modern Era (1945-2003). Ms. Wilson's notes from the extensive Beacon archives held at Harvard Andover Library, which includes a full annotated bibliography of books published by the press, are preserved for scholars and interested readers.

    Abstract:
      Everyone agrees that university libraries and university presses have a shared stake in the future of scholarly communication. Yet often libraries and presses do not see eye to eye on issues. Also, each has its own professional discourse, which sometimes makes dialogue a challenge. In this article, two librarians and a university press editor discuss how they gradually built a partnership and where that relationship may be headed.
