This presentation was given at the 2014 Library Publishing Forum in Kansas City, MO.


Libraries are uniquely positioned to provide publishing solutions to the challenges faced by their campus constituencies, yet to emerge and remain viable to commercial alternatives, they must provide service that does more than replicate traditional models. In this session, presenters will explore issues that call on library publishing programs beyond open access, peer-review journal publication through a consideration of the following questions: Are libraries equipped to handle infrastructure issues (e.g., research data) through existing digital repository programs; how are the challenges around scientific research reproducibility inflecting the service needs of publishing partners; how do libraries conduct incubation and R&D to inform the growing publishing service suite?
