It’s time to start working on your submissions for the 2nd annual Library Publishing Forum! For those of you who weren’t able to attend the first one last March in Kansas City…it was an excellent conference. The first Forum was made up almost entirely of invited proposals. This year, we are opening it up to the community, so show us what you’ve got! (Side note: You do NOT have to be at an LPC member institution to attend or present.) If the date and location look familiar, that’s because it is co-located (but not officially affiliated with) ACRL. I hope to see you there!

Date: March 29-30, 2015

Location: Portland State University, Portland, Oregon

We are pleased to announce the second annual Library Publishing Forum and issue a call for presentation proposals. This year’s theme is Creating and Supporting Sustainable Publishing Programs and we invite proposals for a variety of formats and relevant topics. Please see the full Call for Proposals for details.

This event will bring 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 encourage library publishers (and friends of library publishing) to submit proposals and/or attend the Forum, including both administrators and technical staff charged with this important scholarly communications function. The Library Publishing Forum will include representatives from a broad, international spectrum of academic library backgrounds, 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 this event.

Please check the website for registration information.
