The Library Publishing Coalition’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in library publishing is foundational to the organization’s vision of providing a “scholarly publishing landscape that is open, inclusive, and sustainable” through its values of openness and diversity. This commitment is further instantiated through the initial creation of the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force (2019–2021), and the formalization of that task force into a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee, starting in 2021.


The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee leads LPC’s efforts to create an inclusive community by embedding the work of anti-racism, anti-oppression, and accessibility across the organization. While the DEI Committee assumes this leadership responsibility, DEI is the responsibility of all members of the LPC.

Our work in this area is ongoing. Please check back for further information.
