WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Wake Forest University's Z. Smith Reynolds Library, winner of the 2011 ACRL Excellence in Libraries Award, announces the launch of the latest entry in its innovative mini-MOOC series, ZSRx: Digital Publishing.

This informal, three-week online course will explore the "past, present, and future perfect tenses" of e-books, self-publishing, and the digital publishing landscape.  Anyone interested in the intersection of books, technology, and commerce is sure to find this a fascinating exploration of the massive shift currently underway in the publishing world.

"This is the first time we're inviting registrants from beyond the immediate Wake Forest community," said Dr. Lynn Sutton, Dean of ZSR Library.  "This particular open and online course is designed to be a low-barrier way for folks to take their first MOOC." 

"It's going to be free, informal, and a lot of fun," said Kyle Denlinger, the eLearning Librarian at Wake Forest who operates the ZSRx course platform's knobs and switches.  "We think there are lots of people out there – scholars, consumers, readers, writers – who are interested in the subject, and who are looking for new ways to think about and contribute to our changing digital world."
