  • Library Publishing Directory, 2015
    Author(s): Library Publishing Coaltion (LPC)

    The second edition of the Library Publishing Directory provides a snapshot of the publishing activities of well over 100 academic and research libraries, including information about the number and types of publications they produce, the services they offer authors, how they are staffed and funded, and the future plans of institutions that are engaged in this emerging field. In documenting the breadth and depth of activities in this field, this resource aims to articulate the unique value of library publishing; establish it as a significant and growing community of practice; and to raise its visibility within a number of stakeholder communities, including administrators, funding agencies, other scholarly publishers, librarians, and content creators.

    Specifically it is hoped that this Directory will:

    • Introduce all readers to the emerging field of library publishing and help articulate its unique characteristics as a distinctive "publishing field."
    • Facilitate collaboration among library publishers and other publishing entities, especially the university presses and learned societies that share their values. •
    • Alert authors of scholarly content to a range of potential publishing partners dedicated to supporting their experimentation with new forms of scholarly communication and open access business models.

    The Directory is also available Open Access in several electronic formats through

    “It is a time when one’s spirit is subdued and sad, one knows not why; when the past seems a storm-swept desolation, life a vanity and a burden, and the future but a way to death. It is a time when one is filled with vague longings; when one dreams of flight to peaceful islands in the remote solitudes of the sea, or folds his hands and says, What is the use of struggling, and toiling and worrying any more?” 
    --Mark Twain, THE GILDED AGE


    Finally, the answer to the question:  what is digital publishing anyway?
