Although I wholeheartedly endorse moving towards digital only newsletters and more ephemeral works, I always take pause when considering digital-only publication for scholarly works.
University of Michigan has decided to move toward digital-only publishing with the capability of print-on-demand. The move appears to be partially financial according to the U-M Press Blog, and Phil Pochoda (Dir. of U-M Press) makes some compelling points regarding how digital broadens access. What he does not address is the continuous cost of digital archives.
I hope for the sake of retaining knowledge, the university also has a plan in place to archive physical copies.
