The vibrant cover of DK’s Super Nature Encyclopedia at the front; love it!

Another successful webcast in the books! Check out the archive of Booklist’s “New Nonfiction for Students” webinar and learn a bit about what DK, Scholastic, Britannica, World Book, and Grey House have to offer.

I found the balance of digital versus print media in the presentations to be particularly interesting here; some publishers focused solely on print (myself included) while another went totally digital, and the rest presented a combination of both. When preparing for a webinar like this, it’s important to consider what your audience is looking for, and it’s telling to see how each publisher focused its presentation.

“Getting to the Core” with School Library Journal

SLJ webcast grab

Last week, I had the opportunity to represent DK Publishing in School Library Journal’s “Getting to the Core” webcast, which was sponsored by DK and three other publishers. I talked about some of our upcoming Fall titles (tripping over only a few words…) and cut my teeth on the webcasting world. You can access the recording and slides on SLJ’s archive.

(And yes, I got to talk up a book about dance! Don’t you just love it when two worlds collide?)
