Some university presses and library publishers are providing publishing services such as copyediting, typesetting, print/e-book distribution, and digital platforms to support the research outputs and teaching needs of their home institutions. This panel will focus on questions in publishing services, such as business models, vetting processes, necessary resources, pedagogical opportunities, relationships between presses and libraries, and the potential role of publishing services in demonstrating the value of presses within their host institutions.
