Interested in library publishing services?
Thinking about publishing a book or journal, or helping authors do so?
The Library Publishing Toolkit looks at the broad and varied landscape of
library publishing through discussions, case studies, and shared resources.
From supporting writers, authors, and filmmakers in the public library
setting to academic libraries hosting open access journals and books, this
collection examines opportunities for libraries to leverage their skills
and resources to curate, create and provide access to content.
Both public and academic libraries are invested in the creation and
distribution of information and digital content. They have morphed from
keepers of content into content creators and curators, and seek best
practices and efficient workflows with emerging publishing platforms and
The Library Publishing Toolkit is a project funded partially by Regional
Bibliographic Databases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing Program funds
which are administered and supported by the Rochester Regional Library
Council <http://rrlc.org/>. The toolkit is a united effort between Milne
Library <http://www.geneseo.edu/library> at SUNY
Geneseo<http://www.geneseo.edu>and the Monroe
County Library System <http://www3.libraryweb.org/home2.aspx> to identify
trends in library publishing, seek out best practices to implement and
support such programs, and share the best tools and resources.
