Open access publishing, Scholarly publishing, Academic libraries
Panelists from Portland State, Pacific University, and Temple University will discuss three different models for library publishing, with a focus on collaboration, sustainability, and accessibility. Panelists come from small programs with one or two people at the helm, as well as a program that includes people with diverse publishing backgrounds. We will discuss how our programs grew out of different priorities within our libraries, including a desire to address the high cost of textbooks for our students, as well as an interest in advancing open access more generally. Other things that shaped our programs include a repository platform that supported publishing, and a connection to a university press. We will also offer some practical steps for librarians interested in starting a library publishing program at their own institution.
