LPC Debuts Library Publishing Directory

The Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) published the first edition of its Library Publishing Directory, which provides an overview of the publishing activities of 115 academic and research libraries.

These libraries, located mostly in North America, provide the amount and types of the publications they produce, services for authors, staff and funding resources, and their plans for the future. The directory explores the value of library publishing, explaining its significance as a growing practice in the library community.

LPC aims to raise library publishing’s visibility to administrators, funding agencies, and scholarly publishers. It encourages collaboration between library publishers and other publishing entities.

Library Publishing Directory is a result of LPC’s library-led initiative to serve scholarly communication needs through sustainable library publishing solutions. More than 50 college and university libraries currently participate in the initiative.

Anyone interested in reading the directory can download the open access version as a PDF or EPUB or order the print copy.
