2014 What Are Libraries Doing as Publishers?
Every year more research libraries are developing scholarly communication and publishing programs to serve their campuses. What are the goals and services of these programs? How do they manage publishing challenges like acquisitions, metadata, web discovery, and promotion? How do they balance the desire for innovation with the need to be efficient? How are they combining open access with for-fee content? In this round-table session, the panelists will also address their priorities, challenges, and future plans. University press staff seeking to better understand the publishing initiatives within libraries will benefit from participating. We encourage questions via Twitter, before and during the session, to #AAUP14LibPub
