Library Publishing Coalition announces publication of the 2015 Library Publishing Directory

The Library Publishing Coalition is pleased to announce publication of the 2015 Library Publishing Directory, which highlights the publishing activities of 124 college and university libraries.

Published just in time for Open Access Week, the Directory illustrates the many ways in which libraries are actively transforming and advancing scholarly communications in partnership with scholars, students, university presses, and others.

In documenting the breadth and depth of activities in this field, this resource aims to articulate the unique value of library publishing; establish it as a significant and growing community of practice; and to raise its visibility within a number of stakeholder communities, including administrators, funding agencies, other scholarly publishers, librarians, and content creators.

PDF and EPUB versions are openly available online at

Publication is overseen by the LPC’s Directory Committee:

Holly Mercer (chair), University of Tennessee
Jane Morris, Boston College
Elizabeth Smart, Brigham Young University
Stephanie Davis-Kahl, Illinois Wesleyan University
Beth Turtle, Kansas State University
Shan Sutton, Oregon State University
Linda Friend, Penn State University
Katherine Purple, Purdue University
Adrian Ho, University of Kentucky
Ann Lally, University of Washington
Sarah Lippincott, Library Publishing Coalition|
Joshua Neds-Fox, Wayne State University

The Directory is made possible by the generous donation of services from Purdue University Libraries (design, copyediting, and publishing coordination); Lightning Source (printing); and The Charlesworth Group (XML conversion).
