Serialist as publisher - a great duet? Serialists’ lives at academic libraries revolve around publishing, publication patterns and terminology, and technology. Join us for a session with two serialists who use skills honed in their respective serials departments to see how those skills adapt to the world of e-publishing. In this session, the presenters will discuss their roles in e-publishing and their respective university presses and library publishing programs. How have their libraries reorganized to provide resources for supporting these new roles? The daily work of an e-publishing librarian will be reviewed, including an overview of working with Digital Commons and OJS (Open Journal Systems), two e-press platforms. The presenters will also discuss funding and sustainability of the programs and working with open access and subscription titles.
Presenters: Char Simser, Kansas State University Libraries and Wendy Robertson, University of Iowa Libraries
