As the new millennium progresses, our project editors, copy editors, illustrators, marketing specialists, and typesetters will continue striving to meet the research, curriculum, and scholarly needs of Air University's schools and faculty members. Our future goals include further developing the electronic publishing process, streamlining the publication and distribution of books, journals, and research papers.
