The Library Publishing Coalition Program Committee is excited to announce the host and location for the 2018 Library Publishing Forum. Starting in 2018, we will return to hosting the Forum at a member institution, which allows us to keep attendee costs reasonable while providing opportunities for library tours and other engagement with the host. We are delighted to partner with the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis in 2018!

McNamara Alumni Center by Patrick O'LearyNext year’s Forum will be held on Monday through Wednesday, May 21-23, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the McNamara Alumni Center. With over 47,000 undergraduate and graduate students, the University of Minnesota Twin Cities is the flagship campus of the University of Minnesota system, and the state’s land-grant university. The U of MN Libraries has been an active member of the Library Publishing Coalition since its initial project phase, publishing open journals, textbooks, monographs, and dynamic scholarly serials. The U of MN College of Education and Human Development is also the founding member and host of the Open Textbook Network and Open Textbook Library.

A Call for Proposals for the 2018 Library Publishing Forum will appear in late 2017.
