Re: [ARSCLIST] Preservation media WAS: Cataloguing still :-)
Right, but I'm not saying make the printed book available. I'm saying make large/higher-rez versions
of the photos in a biography, for instance, available. Or, for a reported/journalistic book, perhaps
make transcripts of some or all interviews available, both for history and in the interest of
transparency. Many authors do some of this already on their own websites but it can take some
digging to find the material.

I'd think that part of the slowness is fear that it will cut into sales
of their physical products, like who will buy it if they can download
it... Record companies are dealing with this in their own ways too.

By the way, one solution to all this is simple. Every publisher has a website today. Every book
should have an online component where things like color images can be available. Publishers have
been snail-slow in most cases to understand the multi-media potential of their products.
