It’s time to mark your calendars, because we have a place and time for next year’s Library Publishing Forum! It will be held May 17-19, 2016, at the University of North Texas (in Denton, TX), in conjunction with the annual UNT Open Access Symposium (May 20-21). You may notice that we have staked out three days for the Forum this time, up from two in 2014 and 2015. The program committee is still in the early stages of planning, but I believe the idea is to have workshops or other preconference activities on the 17th. A call for proposals will go out in early November of this year, so stay tuned.
If you are new to the Forum, here’s some background info:
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.
