In recent years, dozens of libraries around the world have launched publishing programs. What factors explain this phenomenon and can libraries really succeed in this competitive, evolving, and highly skilled industry? Can what libraries do even be called "publishing"? This session will address these questions and more, exploring both the why and how of library publishing. Librarians will be introduced to the landscape of library publishing initiatives and will learn the steps involved in launching one at their institution, from assessing campus needs to advocating for resources. Publishers will have a chance to better understand this growing trend and the opportunities it presents for collaboration and innovation. All participants will come away with a better understanding of how libraries are contributing to the transformation of scholarly publishing.
