Dates: Sunday, May 20 through Monday, May 21, 2018 Location: University of Minnesota Registration: free (limit 15)


The two-day KairosCamp Editors Workshop will be held May 20–21, 2018, at University of Minnesota Library prior to the start of the 2018 Library Publishing Forum. This free workshop, staffed by experts in scholarly multimedia publishing, is developed for book or journal editors and publishers who are interested in beginning or honing their experience with multimedia content. The workshop will cover the fundamentals of editorial, design, and production of multimedia content within a scholarly publishing context, including a brief history of scholarly multimedia publishing over the last 25 years. Specific discussions on acquisitions and developmental feedback, peer review, copy- and design-editing, and publication and preservation processes will be covered over the two days. Participants will leave with a set of digital media best practices that they can share with colleagues at their home institutions. For more information on KairosCamp Authors and Editors workshops, please visit
