Description: Library publishing programs do not only exist within the confines of an individual institution. Increasingly, organizations or associations who represent and support libraries are engaging in library publishing activities. While these programs share similarities with traditional library publishing programs, there are also unique challenges posed by publishing at scale. Each presenter will describe how they support distributed library publishing programs with limited resources and will also share accomplishments and lessons learned. Attendees will gain knowledge that they can use to collaboratively develop or expand their library publishing activities that reflect their own mission and needs.
