LPForum 2019 Vancouver

Friday, May 10, 8:30-9:30am
Room: Joseph & Rosalie Segal Centre (1400-1430)

Moderated by: Kate McCready (University of Minnesota), LPC Board President

Description: All LPC members and Forum attendees are welcome to join us for this discussion-based meeting. The last year has been an exciting one in scholarly communications, with funders pushing for open access, universities pushing back against harmful practices by commercial publishers, and libraries investing in community-owned infrastructure. These developments all present opportunities for library publishers, but they also raise some important questions, like…what’s our end game? What is the ultimate goal of library publishing, and what are we hoping to accomplish through our publishing activities? Join your fellow library publishers for a lively discussion to inform our work – both locally and at the field level.
