The Library Publishing Coalition is delighted to welcome Cornell University as a new member!
About Cornell University Library:
One of the leading academic research libraries in the United States, Cornell University Library promotes a culture of broad inquiry with its world-class holdings, expert staff, and cutting-edge services. Comprehensive electronic and print resources, including rare and unique manuscripts, support the full range of scholarly endeavor. Connections with partner institutions widen access to specialized material, facilitate international research and learning opportunities, and fuel the pace of innovation. The Library’s commitment to the production, dissemination, and preservation of knowledge drives it to the forefront of digital scholarship and open-access advocacy. Librarians’ expertise in innovative tools and technology equips students to succeed in a digital society, and enhances all facets of teaching and learning at Cornell.
Does your library publish journals, monographs, conference proceedings, or technical reports? Do you provide hosting and support services for digital humanities projects, data, or ETDs? Help us to document the range of activities that libraries are undertaking in “publishing” (broadly defined) through their work in scholarly communications, digital humanities, digital sciences, and institutional repositories.
To promote collaboration and knowledge-sharing, and to raise the visibility of the unique contributions of libraries as publishers, the Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) is compiling the seventh edition of our Library Publishing Directory.
To have a profile of your library included in the Directory, please complete our questionnaire by August 23, 2019.
The questionnaire takes between 30 and 45 minutes to complete. You can save your progress and return later, but we recommend previewing the questions before you begin. If your library has had an entry in a previous edition of the Directory, you should soon receive an email with instructions on how to update it. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
About the Directory
The Library Publishing Directory is an important tool for libraries wishing to learn about this emerging field, connect with their peers, and align their practices with those of the broader community. Last year’s edition featured 135 libraries in half a dozen nations. The Directory is published openly on the web and includes contact information, descriptions, and other key facts about each library’s publishing services. Previous editions (in PDF, EPUB, and database versions) can be found on the LPC website.
The Directory is produced in collaboration with Purdue University Libraries and Bookmasters.
The Library Publishing Coalition is delighted to welcome the University of Houston as a new member!

In support of this mission, University Libraries offers institutional and data repository services, and is currently in its second year of developing an Alternative Textbook Incentive Program as well as the Digital Research Commons, a lab that builds communities of digital scholarship practitioners and sponsors digitally based research projects. We are pleased to be a part of the Library Publishing Coalition, and look forward to learning from and sharing with the community!
