Event description

Description

A new role that libraries are playing with increasing success is in the dissemination of original scholarly and literary materials. Both public and academic libraries are becoming publishers for their communities. Over the last few years, the number of libraries with a commitment to publishing has grown substantially, with both academic and public libraries finding a strong demand for their services. The latest Library Publishing Directory profiles more than 115 libraries with active publishing programs, most in North America but an increasing number in other continents. A global community of library publishers is forming, and this meeting provides the ideal opportunity to meet with colleagues from around the world to identify common themes, brainstorm about shared challenges, and identify future opportunities for information exchange and collaboration.

The program will comprise three half-day sessions titled “Understanding the Vision,” “Implementing the Vision,” and “Sustaining and Growing the Vision.” We envision programming in a variety of formats, including short case studies.

Registration includes dinner on Wednesday and Thursday, lunch on Friday, and refreshments throughout.
