Promoting innovative, sustainable publishing services in academic & research libraries

The LPC fosters collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and the development of common practices for library publishers. Our goal is to explore how to better serve the scholarly communication needs of the academic community, through sustainable, innovative library publishing solutions aligned with institutional missions.

LPC membership is open to academic and research libraries and library consortia seeking to explore and define new publishing solutions. We actively seek strategic alliances and connections to organizations with similar values and interests.


The 2016 Library Publishing Forum will be held May 17 - 19, 2016 at the UNT Libraries in Denton, TX.
New resource: The LPC's Professional Development Guide for library publishers.
Please join us on October 19 for a webinar from Pressbooks founder Hugh McGuire.
