Liblisher or Pubrary: Navigating the New Library Publishing Landscape
More and more university presses are now part of their university library infrastructure, and more libraries are moving forward with publications of their own. The business of libraries and publishers are now intertwined and overlapping. Libraries have been proponents of open access, whereas many scholarly publishers have been wary about, if not hesitant to implement, open models. How are priorities such as funding and sustainability achieved? What does the current library publishing landscape look like? How does the Library Publishing Coalition fit in? Whether you are a publisher who reports to (or operates closely with your campus library), a publisher whose content is provided to students and researchers primarily through libraries, or a library publishing your own content, please come prepared for a lively roundtable discussion with those wearing more than one hat in the scholarly communication ecosystem.
