LPC Publishers & Service Providers

Connecting the library publishing community with support and fostering relationships across sectors

To encourage communication and collaboration across sectors and to support its operations, the Library Publishing Coalition welcomes non- and for-profit organizations to engage with the LPC community through its Publishers and Service Providers Program.

Eligibility: The program welcomes non- and for-profit publishers and service providers that work with, or provide services of interest to, library publishers. The LPC Board is responsible for determining eligibility for the program and approving sponsor contracts. Organizations participating in this program are required to adhere to LPC’s Code of Conduct when interacting with the LPC community and its members.

Costs and benefits: Costs vary by tier, from free (inclusion on the LPC’s Publishers and Service Providers List) to significant financial support of the organization (with attendant recognition and benefits). Lower paid tiers include only sponsorship of the annual Library Publishing Forum, while higher levels include Forum sponsorship plus organizational sponsorship. See the full program description below for details or download the handy sponsorship tiers summary (PDF).

Timing: Sponsorship is annual, based on the calendar year. New sponsors may be added at any time, but fees will not be prorated. The “Publishers and Service Providers” list is updated annually, at which point participants must reaffirm their desire to be included.
