Subject: [APG] Does Publishing Need Genealogists?
Date: Mon, 12 Jan 2009 04:03:02 -0500

Publishers' Weekly has just posted this article in this week's issue
online as well as the print version. My name is misspelled :) and there
are a few other nits, but basically the article should introduce a broad
spectrum of potential clients to the utility of modern genealogy.

Does Publishing Need Genealogists?

In 2008, the magazine's circulation was 25,000. In 2004, the breakdown
of those 25,000 readers was given as 6000 publishers; 5500 public
libraries and public library systems; 3800 booksellers; 1600 authors and
writers; 1500 college and university libraries; 950 print, film and
broad media; and 750 literary and rights agents, among others.

Subject areas covered by Publishers Weekly include bookstores, book
design and manufacture, bookselling, marketing, merchandising and trade
news, along with author interviews and regular columns on film rights,
people in publishing and bestsellers. It attempts to serve all involved
in the creation, production, marketing and sale of the written word in
book, audio, video and electronic formats. The magazine increases the
page count considerably for special issues: Children's Books, Spring
Announcements and Fall Announcements.
