The Library Publishing Coalition is pleased to announce the publication of the 2023 Library Publishing Directory! This year’s print, PDF, and EPUB versions of the Library Publishing Directory highlight the publishing activities of 159 library publishers across the globe..
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 2023 Directory also reflects an ongoing 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 print, PDF, and EPUB versions of the Directory. All entries appear in the online version. IFLA’s Library Publishing Map of the World is a first-of-its-kind online database of global library publishing initiatives. .
Publication of the 2023 Directory was overseen by the LPC’s Directory Committee:
