AMS Book Exhibit at the 2014 Joint Mathematics Meetings
The AMS Publications exhibit featured over 300 new, recent, and best-selling books for attendees to browse and purchase. An iPad station allowed customers to view additional books, as well as access AMS journals, eBooks, and MathSciNet®. For additional information about MathSciNet, attendees could chat with one of the Mathematical Reviews editors, who were using author profile pictures to demonstrate a new MathSciNet feature that allows authors to customize a portion of their online profile. The AMS web editor was available to talk to attendees about recent and future enhancements to ams.org. Potential authors could meet with AMS acquisitions editors, and a representative from MathJax was available to talk about all things MathJax, from blogs to apps to publishing workflows. As always, representatives from the Mathematics Genealogy Project were available to trace attendees’ "academic heritage." Renowned author Reuben Hersh signed copies of his new book, Experiencing Mathematics: What do we do, when we do mathematics? Attendees also enjoyed a “Meet and Greet” with 2014 Steele Prize winners Phillip Griffiths and Dmitri Burago. A prepublication copy of our upcoming book for children, Really Big Numbers, was a big hit with the 8 and over crowd.
