This year’s Library Publishing Directory is available! Announcement:

The Library Publishing Coalition is pleased to announce publication of the 2017 Library Publishing Directory, which highlights the publishing activities of over 115 college and university libraries.

PDF and EPUB versions are openly available online at

The Directory illustrates the many ways in which libraries are actively transforming and advancing scholarly communications in partnership with scholars, students, university presses, and others.

In documenting the breadth and depth of activities in this field, this resource aims to articulate the unique value of library publishing; establish it as a significant and growing community of practice; and to raise its visibility within a number of stakeholder communities, including administrators, funding agencies, other scholarly publishers, librarians, and content creators.

Publication was overseen by the LPC’s Directory Committee:
  • Joshua Neds-Fox, Wayne State (chair)
  • Char Simser, Kansas State University
  • Terry Owen, University of Maryland
  • Liz Hamilton, Northwestern University
  • Katherine Purple, Purdue University (ex officio)
  • Sarah Lippincott, Hampshire College (ex officio)
The Directory is made possible by the generous donation of services from Purdue University Libraries and Bookmasters.


The date and location for the 2017 Library Publishing  Forum has been announced. It will take place March 20-22nd in Baltimore, MD. Save the date and visit the website for more information.
