Program Overview

The creation and dissemination of scholarly knowledge is a vital part of the Pacific University Libraries’ mission, including the scholarship and creative efforts of Pacific’s faculty, staff, and students, and the work of scholars at other academic institutions. These works also have the potential to benefit people outside of the University. Our publishing program provides a way for knowledge to be shared, discovered, and used in new and unanticipated ways.
