Dear Colleagues,

Does your library publish journals, monographs, conference proceedings, or technical reports? Do you provide hosting and support services for digital humanities projects, data, or ETDs?

Help us to document the range of activities that libraries are undertaking in “publishing” (broadly defined) through their work in scholarly communications, digital humanities, digital sciences, and institutional repositories.

To promote collaboration and knowledge-sharing, and to raise the visibility of the unique contributions of libraries as “publishers,” the Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) is compiling the fifth edition of our Library Publishing Directory.

To have a profile of your library included in the Directory, please complete our questionnaire at:


The survey will close on August 30.

The questionnaire takes between 30 and 45 minutes to complete. We recommend previewing the questions before you begin.

The Library Publishing Directory is an important tool for libraries wishing to learn about this emerging field, connect with their peers, and align their practices with those of the broader community. Last year's edition featured 125 libraries in half a dozen nations. It was downloaded over 400 times.

The Directory is published openly on the web and will include contact information, descriptions, and other key facts about each library's publishing services. Previous editions (in PDF, EPUB, MOBI, and database versions)  can be found at http://www.librarypublishing.org/resources/directory.

The Directory is made possible by the generous donation of services from Purdue University Libraries and Bookmasters.

Please e-mail Melanie Schlosser ([log in to unmask]) with questions or comments. We look forward to hearing from you.
