About the Conference
The Library Publishing Forum 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.

We welcome participants from a broad, international spectrum of academic libraries, as well as groups that collaborate with libraries to publish scholarly works including the digital humanities. You do not need to be a member of the LPC to attend. A program and slides from last year’s Forum are available at Video recordings of selected sessions are forthcoming.
