Consulted on August 9, 2019 by link.galegroup.com/apps/doc/A584330219/AONE?sid=lms The Library Publishing Coalition (LPC), is working with its host organization, the Educopia Institute, to conduct targeted research to document the library`s current range of publishing activities (including costs, staff and how libraries fund these projects); Refine the rationale and positioning of library-based publishing activities; Orient library activities in this area to meet the needs and objectives of universities; and help additional libraries design and develop publishing service programs. This publication contains a list of skills and knowledge useful for the development and provision of library publishing services, which are grouped into three categories: publishing, curriculum development and management, teaching and consulting. It will help publishing programs identify essential skills and help individuals in the field identify their strengths and areas where they are interested in growth. Published April 2020. This publication is an exploration of the areas where research is needed to support library publishing practices. The research agenda provides experimental tables on six themes (assessment, work, accessibility, non-traditional research results, peer review and partnerships), each including a summary, potential research questions and a list of relevant resources.
This publication will be of interest to anyone interested in or interested in research in this area. Published April 2020. Adema, J., Moore, S.A. (2018).
