The Espresso Book Machine: Print On Demand at the University of Alberta Bookstore
Todd Anderson, Director of the University of Alberta Bookstore, was responsible for acquiring the first Espresso Book Machine ever used in a University Bookstore. After talking to Jacob Epstein, one of the principals of On Demand Books at a conference in Boston in 2006, Anderson decided that he and his colleagues could create new opportunities for students, faculty and the public by using this unique machine. The Espresso Book Machine has been a great success at the U of A Bookstore and Todd Anderson has become one of the leading experts in the world on its use. Anderson discusses the successes of the Espresso Book Machine at the U of A and his ideas with regard to print on demand and the future of publishing.
