Call for Proposals and Papers:

Libraries are engaging, with increasing success, in the dissemination of 
original scholarly and literary materials. Both public and academic libraries 
are becoming publishers for their communities. Over the last few years, the 
number of libraries with a commitment to publishing has grown substantially, 
with both academic and public libraries finding a strong demand for their 
services. The latest Library Publishing Directory profiles more than 115 
libraries with active publishing programs, most in North America but an 
increasing number in other continents. A global community of library publishers 
is forming, and this meeting provides the ideal opportunity to meet with 
colleagues from around the world to identify common themes, brainstorm about 
shared challenges, and identify future opportunities for information exchange 
and collaboration.

The program will comprise three half-day sessions titled "Understanding the 
Vision," "Implementing the Vision," and "Sustaining and Growing the Vision."

We invite proposals in English (up to 300 words) for 10-15 minute presentations 
addressing topics that align with one of the three session themes. Examples of 
such topics might include (but are by no means limited to):

● Reflecting on the outcomes of a specific library publishing program or project

● The emerging impact/role of library-published work in collection development

● Launching a small, open-access journal from within a library

● How a library publishing program or individual publication can achieve 
financial sustainability

● The role of the library in meeting scholars’ obligations to freely 
disseminate their work

● The role of the library in supporting innovation in digital 

● Opportunities for collaboration between university libraries and university 

● Case studies of existing projects

We welcome submissions from around the globe and particularly those from 
outside of North America.
