The Library Publishing Forum (May 10-14, 12pm to 5pm Eastern) is virtual this year! See below for information about registration, program, keynotes, and invited plenaries.
Register now! The registration fee is a super affordable US$25 for the whole week. However, we do not want cost to be a barrier to participation for anyone, so waivers will be granted on request. No details necessary – just email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for a waiver.
The preliminary program for the Forum is available on our website, and it looks great! Full session descriptions are linked on the website and will also be available on our Sched site to registered attendees.
Opening and closing the conference will be Elaine Westbrooks (Vice Provost of University Libraries and University Librarian at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and Kaitlin Thaney (Executive Director of Invest in Open Infrastructure).
New this year: we will have two additional invited plenary sessions.
On Tuesday, May 11: Conversation with up//root
On Wednesday, May 12: Interweaving the golden threads into a publishing service
About the Library Publishing Forum
The Library Publishing Forum is an annual conference bringing together representatives from libraries engaged in (or considering) publishing initiatives to define and address major questions and challenges; to identify and document collaborative opportunities; and to strengthen and promote this community of practice. The Forum includes representatives from a broad, international spectrum of academic library backgrounds, as well as groups that collaborate with libraries to publish scholarly works, including publishing vendors, university presses, and scholars. The Forum is sponsored by the Library Publishing Coalition, but you do not need to be a member of the LPC to attend.
