In the circles of "digital humanists" or "technorhetoricians", it is 
fairly frequently discussed that the common currency of a humanities 
tenure case is frequently the *book*, rather than the article.

Books are, of course, [or perhaps *not* of course...] less frequently OA 
or released 'gratis' than journal articles or entries into conference 
proceedings are....

Hoping that some of the folks on the list from rhetoric will chime in - 
especially those who do IP issues and 'digital tenure' sorts of advocacy,
