2011 Communicating with Your Library
This session pairs three academic librarians with three university press staff members to discuss the possibilities for better library-press communication. While both sides share an appreciation for metadata, ISBNs and bar codes, elsewhere along the press-library seam there can be tensions. Panelists will tackle the especially fraught issues of campus-based publishing; author rights and fair use; and finally consortia, licensing, resources, and responsibilities. The goal is to avoid pitfalls and communicate better about our complementary roles in the scholarly communication enterprise.
Chair: Patrick Alexander, Director, Penn State University Press
Panelists: Leila Salisbury, Director, University Press of Mississippi; Charles Watkinson, Director, Purdue University Press; Mark Newton, Purdue University Libraries; Lisa Quinn, Acquisitions Editor, Wilfrid Laurier University Press; and two additional library panelists, TBA
