What does multimedia scholarly publishing in the humanities look like in 2012? Software platforms, devices, and publications have advanced since our panel in 2010, when we introduced some cutting-edge multimedia e-books (“Enhanced E-Books: What Are They & What Will They Mean for Libraries?”). We will examine some new enhanced e-books with oral-history excerpts that talk and annotations that link to outside archives and data sets--and we will ask some sharp questions about how libraries are going to handle these types of publications. Next, we will look at how some libraries are stepping in to fulfill the needs of digital humanities scholars whose work does not fit the confines of the traditional book or journal. Examples are interactive maps and augmented-reality applications. What does such role-bending mean for libraries and the future of scholarly publishing; can libraries and publishers be partners in the publishing of multimedia digital humanities scholarship?
