Event description


The Library Publishing Coalition and the Educopia Institute are excited to host a series of virtual pilot workshops based on the IMLS-funded Developing a Curriculum to Advance Library-Based Publishing project. Our second virtual workshop - Library Publishing Curriculum: Impact - will begin on August 24, 2018 and will include four sessions. The workshop is limited to 30 participants, and registration is first come, first served. There is no registration fee.

This workshop is based on the Impact module of the Library Publishing Curriculum released in February of 2018. (Learn more about the release!) The Impact Module focuses on how library publishers measure and extend the impact of their work. It covers how to identify and apply specific impact measures for publications, how to assess the performance of a publishing program and publication portfolio, and how to build an engagement strategy and evaluate its effects.

Instructor: Charles Watkinson, Associate University Librarian for Publishing / Director, University of Michigan Press
