University Press Week: #TwitterStorm

This week is University Press Week! This year's focus is #LookItUP: a tribute to the knowledge and facts that all university presses publish and value, especially in the face of "fake news" and "alternative facts". This week we'll be sharing how our friends across the nation are demonstrating their expertise on a variety of subjects. Today's theme is "#TwitterStorm", where we discuss how social media has contributed to the success of a University Press initiative or helped spread the word of important scholarship. 

Harvard University Press looked at the role social media has played in the publication of Impeachment: A Citizen's Guide.

Editorial Director of Johns Hopkins University Press, Greg Britton, extols the virtues of Twitter in their post.

Athabasca University Press discussed how they're engaging with scholars through Facebook Live and other social media channels to make the work of publishers more visible.

For Beacon Press, social media helped spread the word and keep the conversation going about Christopher Emdin's For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood...and the Rest of Y'all Too.
