2021 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 2021 Library Publishing Forum will be a virtual conference. We are excited to be able to share Forum programming with the library publishing community as travel and large gatherings are impossible.
