Recordings of selected sessions, including the two keynotes, from the 2015 Library Publishing Forum (March 29-30, Portland State University) are now freely available online at http://newprairiepress.org/lpforum/2015/.
Hosted by the Library Publishing Coalition, the Library Publishing Forum is an annual event that (http://www.librarypublishing.org/events/lpforum15) brings together representatives from libraries engaged in (or considering) publishing initiatives to define and address major questions and challenges; to identify and document collaborative opportunities; to strengthen and promote this community of practice; and to advance this vibrant subfield of academic publishing. This year’s conference focused on the theme of Creating and Supporting Sustainable Publishing Programs.
The recorded presentations cover a range of topics relevant to library publishers, including library-press collaboration, business models, and case studies of successful publishing initiatives. Keynotes from Martin Paul Eve (University of Lincoln, Open Library of the Humanities) and John Willinsky (Stanford University) address the future of open access and library publishing.
The LPC thanks New Prairie Press for generously hosting the recordings.
