The keynote speakers for the 2015 Library Publishing Forum (March 29-30, Portland, OR) have been announced, and I think they’re going to be excellent. The opening keynote will be given by Dr. Martin Paul Eve from the University of Lincoln in the UK (and founder of the Open Library of Humanities), and the closing by Dr. John Willinsky from Stanford University (and Simon Frazer University, where he directs the Public Knowledge Project). Each is a significant player in the world of new-model scholarly publishing, and I can’t wait to hear what they have to say to a group of library-publishers.

We are also creeping up on the December 31st deadline for submissions to the Forum, so get yours in soon!
