LPC Publishers & Service Providers

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.

Costs and benefits: Costs vary by tier, from free (inclusion in 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.

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.

How to participate: Email contact@librarypublishing.org.

Free

Any publisher or service provider who meets the criteria for the program and wants to publicly state their interest in working with the community of library publishers can ask to be included in a list of “Service Providers and Publishers” on the LPC website [forthcoming]. Inclusion in the list does not constitute an endorsement, and no other benefits are conferred on the participants in this tier.
