Audio Bookshelf Title Development
September 2 , 2008
Springfield, OH---WittCAM students Maureen Walsh, Sara Wheeler, and Todd Carter will be working this semester on a project with Audio Bookshelf, a business owned by a Wittenberg alumnus.David Dittmann that produces audio books for libraries. Throughout the semester, the team plans to research future title releases and negotiate copyrights with authors. They will be doing extensive research with area librarians to investigate different libraries’ processes for choosing audio book titles. The initial focus of this investigation will be a librarians’ conference in Columbus, Ohio. They also plan to research target age groups and genres of current Audio Bookshelf titles to further assist the selection of new titles. The students look forward to working with Dittmann to further enhance his already successful business.
