Library Publishing ServiceRikk Mulligan, Digital Scholarship Strategist
The Carnegie Mellon University Libraries Publishing Service (LPS) provides an infrastructure to publish and host born-digital scholarly content including research and creative products. LPS is part of the emerging innovations and services the CMU Libraries offer to support the growing digital scholarship and publishing needs of the CMU community.
The mission of the CMU LPS is to maximize open and free access to scholarly publications and products in a sustainable fashion for the benefit of scholars, students, and the general public. We champion open access to promote learning, share research, and create greater opportunities to engage the general public.
