The NEXT Digital Scholar has arrived

NEXTdigitalscholarfrontcoverThe Next Digital Scholar is a timely tome focused on issues around the Common Core State Standards–particularly in the areas of practices and standards in digital research, reading, and writing–edited by James P. Purdy and Randall McClure.

This latest title in the ASIST Monograph Series published by ITI is a followup to McClure and Purdy’s The New Digital Scholar (2013), which as I reported in May was the recipient of a coveted Silver IPPY Award and has received considerable critical acclaim.

If you’d like to explore the new book, we’ve posted its Table of Contents (includes contributor bylines), Introduction, and brief biographies of editors Purdy and McClure.

Print copies are available now and digital editions will be available soon on ITI’s ebookstore. If you’re interested in the CCSS you won’t want to miss this one.
