Academic libraries can become the center of on-campus scholarly publishing initiatives by offering and supporting scholarly publishing services.
This presentation explores the library as publisher from two perspectives:
Developing a library publishing strategy: What kind of publication support do our faculty need and expect? What types of services should libraries consider offering? How can we create a sustainable funding model for library publishing?
What are some of the issues that academic libraries encounter as they move into the field of publishing.
Showing real examples of how academic libraries are successfully providing publishing services, including:
• Peer-reviewed scholarly journals
• Student journals
• Monographs: the library Imprint or partnerships with the University Press
• Events publishing: Conferences and workshops
The discussion will show that academic libraries can provide publishing services that expand and enhance the range of library services to faculty, students, administration and their greater communities.
