While publishing activities at the Library of Congress date back to 1802, recent years have seen the emergence and growth of publishing within academic and public libraries worldwide. Clark, Director of the Library of Congress Publishing Office, will focus on trends in library publishing, as well as developments within the Library of Congress Publishing Office, which is exploring new models and collaborations to make the treasures of the world’s largest library accessible to readers worldwide.
Becky Brasington Clark is director of the Library of Congress Publishing Office (LCPO), which collaborates with private-sector partners to publish books, calendars, and other consumer products based on the Library’s collections. Before joining the Library she spent 12 years as director of marketing for the Johns Hopkins University Press and held similar positions at the Brookings Institution Press, the New Republic, Counterpoint Press, and Moon Travel Handbooks.
A light lunch will follow the presentation.
