Library Publishing Directory
The Library Publishing Directory provides an annual snapshot of the publishing activities of 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 their future plans. In documenting the breadth and depth of activities in this field, this resource aims to articulate the unique value of library publishing; to 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, this Directory:
- Introduces readers to the growing field of library publishing and helps articulate its unique characteristics as a distinctive publishing field.
- Facilitates collaboration among library publishers and other publishing entities, especially the university presses and learned societies that share their values.
- Alerts 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.
- Enables benchmarking and identification of trends in the field.
Production of this Directory is supported by Purdue University Libraries and Bookmasters.
