The Next Generation Library Publishing (NGLP) project is an Arcadia-funded collaborative effort to improve publishing pathways and choices for authors, editors, and readers through strengthening, integrating, and scaling up scholarly publishing infrastructure to support library publishers. Now in its third year, the Next Generation Library Publishing project has completed the first development phase of its two open source components, the Web Delivery Platform (WDP) and the Analytics Dashboard (AD). The current phase of the project seeks to implement the components to address specific use cases for library publishers through a series of projects and pilots.

This presentation will highlight the recently-launched NGLP pilots, allowing each of the three service provider partners (California Digital Library, Janeway, and Longleaf Services) to describe their service offering and how it is tailored to their pilot partners’ needs. These presentations will take the form of case studies, outlining the different context and priorities of each pilot (a consortial publishing solution, a unified journal and IR solution, and a scalable journal publishing solution) before jumping into the specifics of timeline, resourcing, business modeling, and pilot evaluation plans. Service provider panelists will then discuss the potential for service models following the pilot phase – in particular, engaging with the challenges of implementing values-aligned service models.
