Drawing on the lessons learned through more than two years of the IMLS-funded Library Publishing Workflows (LPW) project (, this workshop will provide participants with the tools, resources, and support they need to get started with workflow documentation. Participants will then have an opportunity to get a strong start on their documentation process.

This workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the LPW project, the methods the project team employed, example documentation, and the reflection tools developed to make the documentation useful and actionable. The majority of the workshop will consist of structured time for participants to sketch out a rough draft of their workflow, have a review session with a partner to identify gaps or unclear descriptions, and then reflect on practices through the paradigm of one or more of the recently released LPW reflection tools.

This workshop will provide participants with a strong start to their workflow documentation process, as well as the motivation, knowledge, and tools to complete their documentation in the days, weeks, and months following the Forum.
