The Library Publishing Coalition Project: Building Capacity for an Emerging Area of Library Service Provision

Charles Watkinson
Executive Group, Library Publishing Coalition
Director, Purdue University Press
Head of Scholarly Publishing Services, Purdue Libraries

The Library Publishing Coalition Project is a two year program that began in January 2013 to build a collaborative framework to support the development of library publishing services in academic libraries. In 2012 a project sponsored by IMLS, "Library Publishing Services: Strategies for Success," reported that 55% of academic libraries of all sizes were either developing or implementing library services (including 79% of ARL libraries). It identified major needs for the development of best practices, collaboration to create community-based resources, and formalization of skills and training. The LPC project represents the response of a group of over fifty North American libraries to these recommendations. Programs currently under development include the publication of a directory of library publishing programs, the first of its kind; the organization of an annual meeting, to be first held in 2014; the creation of an online repository for sharing useful publishing tools, workflows, and documents; and the deployment of a targeted research agenda. This presentation will give an overview of library publishing activities as currently understood, describe how the LPC project fits into this landscape, and provide an update on progress so far. Plenty of time will be left for feedback and discussion.

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.

User Experience Design Discussion Forum (MARS): How Wide the Divide - Why We Are Still Asking Discussion/Interest group McCormick Place Convention Center
N135
Description :

Does asking users about their library needs create a better understanding of library services? Can academic libraries put users’ needs at the center of service development and if so, would this revitalize the library as more than “place?” Two surveys, one for library users and one for library staff, measured responses to same or similar questions asked of information commons users and staff at five academic libraries. With the analysis of the Crump/Freund surveys, presenters will discuss the perceptions of library staff and library users to confirm the existence of a divide and determine if assessing user experience will offer strategies to narrow the divide.

Presenters: Michele Crump is the head of Access Support at the University of Florida Libraries. Prior to her current position, she served in various technical services positions at Florida since 1991: Emerging Technology Librarian, interim Director of Technical Services Division, and chair of Acquisitions and Licensing Department. LeiLani Freund is currently a reference librarian, Linguistics subject specialist, and Assessment/Information Services Coordinator at the Library West Humanities and Social Sciences Library, the largest branch of the University of Florida Libraries. Since 1989 she has served in a number of managerial positions at Florida, including terms as Associate Chair and Interim Chair of Library West.
