LPC Blog

The Library Publishing Coalition Blog is used to share news and updates about the LPC and the Library Publishing Forum, to draw attention to items of interest to the community, and to publish informal commentaries by LPC members and friends.

The Library Publishing Coalition is pleased to announce the publication of the 2022 Library Publishing Directory! This year’s online, print, PDF, and EPUB versions of the Library Publishing Directory highlight the publishing activities of 145 academic and research libraries. 

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. Each year, the Directory’s introduction presents a ‘state of the field’ based on that year’s data, which we also publish in a related blog posting.

The 2022 Directory continues our partnership with the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) Library Publishing Special Interest Group (LibPub SIG), and includes international entries, translated by IFLA LibPub SIG members. Libraries who chose to complete the full survey appear in the online, print, PDF, and EPUB versions of the Directory. Those who chose to complete the shorter survey will appear only in the IFLA LibPub SIG’s map of global library publishing initiatives.  

We are also happy to report that the associated research data set, first published last year in collaboration with the LPC Research Committee, has been updated to include data from the 2022 Directory.

Publication of the 2022 Directory was overseen by the LPC’s Directory Committee:
