LSU Press May Close Due To State's Financial Crisis

Proposed budget cuts at Louisiana State University have made the national news: the Louisiana State University Press may close its doors, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education news blog. Earlier this morning I heard an interview on this topic with Bob Mann of the Manship School of Journalism on the local NPR news station; he noted that the Press operates on a very lean budget of $450,000 per year. For that amount of money, the Press has delivered numerous prize-winning titles, and has earned four Pulitzer Prizes.
