Description

The traditional role of libraries as aggregators, curators and disseminators of resources has been profoundly challenged by the notion of libraries as publishers of content. The traditional publishing model is based on ownership, commerce, paid exchanges, and scholarship as a commodity. Libraries are based on a service model of sharing resources & free exchange. Academic libraries are therefore uniquely positioned to provide publishing solutions which can reduce student costs and provide faculty and students an alternative to traditional publishing. Both Portland State University (PSU) Library and Oregon State University Libraries and Press (OSULP) are providing a variety of publishing solutions to their respective campuses. Attendees will learn about an array of library publishing projects, including PSU’s reTHINK PDX Open Textbook project (part of the Provost’s Challenge), OSULP’s Open Textbook Initiative, publication of conference proceedings and journals (including student-run journals), a student iBook Author project, and several other unique library-campus collaborations. Challenges and opportunities for Library publishing will be discussed, and existing Library publishing models will be examined.
