LPForum 2019 Vancouver

Day: Thursday, May 9, 11:15am-12:15pm
Room: Joseph & Rosalie Segal Centre (1400-1430)

Presenters: Alison McGonagle-O’Connell, Coko Foundation; Christine Fruin, Atla; Jason Colman, M Publishing/Fulcrum; John Sherer, UNC Press/Longleaf Services; Catherine Mitchell, California Digital Library (moderator)

Description: It sounds too good to be true… There is an open source, web-based, community-led production tool that facilitates both collaboration and rapid digitization? A tool that enables modern web-based workflows, at last? One which is evolved by the community, to which you add the features your organization needs? And even for smaller presses and library publishers?

Editoria is a streamlined online production tool for monograph publishing, created for the use of publishers of all sizes. Its first iteration was envisioned by University of California Press and California Digital Library, who engaged Coko Foundation as technology partner. This open source platform continues to develop in partnership with other organizations, also know as the community.

In this session, we will discuss the current state of Editoria directly with Library Publishers, including Michigan Publishing and Fulcrum; and University of North Carolina with Longleaf, and ATLA Press.

Through this panel session, we will consider how library publishers are using Editoria, and how they can contribute to this community-owned solution. The presenters will provide details about how they are working with Coko and each other to develop Editoria. There will be ample time for discussion and audience Q/A.
