Event description
NGLP Community Forum: Sharing our progress and opportunities for involvement

About this event

Over the past two years, our team has been building a suite of tools and resources that put libraries at the forefront of transformative change in scholarly publishing. Our project takes a holistic approach to reenvisioning publishing, simultaneously architecting new software tailored to the unique needs of library publishers and designing the business models, values-based assessment frameworks, and pilot implementations that bring our code to life.

At the community forum, we will introduce two new software components we are building to fill gaps identified through extensive community outreach and research. You’ll learn about the Web Delivery Platform (WDP), a flexible, modern, front-end display platform that elegantly showcases a range of content, from journals to ETDs, aggregated from upstream content systems like Janeway and DSpace. You’ll also hear about our Analytics Dashboard (AD), a feature-rich platform that allows you to explore usage and workflow data aggregated from multiple sources and presented in dynamic visualizations.

We’ll share details about our three pilot implementations of these components, which bring together multiple service providers to collectively build and maintain software and service models that align with the needs and values of library publishers. We invite you to help us fulfill our goal of designing community-centered software solutions by providing your thoughts and feedback on our work so far, and our near-term directions.

Organizer Educopia Institute

Organizer of Next Generation Library Publishing Community Forum

The Educopia Institute empowers collaborative communities to create, share, and preserve knowledge.

We believe in the power of connection and collaboration. In all of our work, we encourage knowledge sharing and network building across institutions, communities, and sectors. Our strengths include training, neutral community facilitation, and administrative backbone support services for collaborative communities. Educopia also develops and manages applied research projects that benefit our affiliated communities and the broader information fields of libraries, archives, and museums.

We help information stakeholders including researchers, archivists, curators, publishers, and students to establish common ground, work toward shared goals, and ultimately achieve system-wide transformations.

Since its founding in 2006, the Educopia Institute has laid a foundation for sustainable growth and programmatic success by:

  • Maintaining a minimal and flexible staff, enabling us to serve clients with maximum effectiveness at low cost.
  • Working with community leaders to harness state-of-the-field research while developing organizational frameworks, governance structures, and economic models that provide the foundation for community-driven growth and sustainability.
  • Engaging and partnering with diverse stakeholders from public and private spheres representing libraries, archives, presses, research centers and scholars, as well as cultural and scientific non-profits, government agencies and fellow meta-organizations.

Growing beyond its initial support of the MetaArchive Cooperative, the Educopia Institute has entered into program development partnerships with affiliated communities, such as the Library Publishing Coalition and the BitCurator Consortium.
