The Publishing House2020 CONTACT:
Joshua Neds-Fox, Coordinator for Digital Publishing
The Publishing House in the Library System exists to foster the development, production, and preservation of scholarly communication through open access (OA) publication. Our goal is to make research and creative activities as freely available as possible, paying as much attention to our local needs as our global ones, and operating with a sense of equity and social justice. We aim to expand the scope and capacity of library publishing and become a leader in digital-publishing workflows, infrastructures, and publishing pedagogy.
