The Academic Library as Scholarly Publisher Bibliography includes over 
125 selected English-language articles, books, and technical reports 
that are useful in understanding the digital scholarly publishing 
activities of academic libraries since the late 1980's, especially their 
open access book and journal publishing activities. The bibliography 
covers the following subtopics: pioneering academic library publishing 
projects in the 1980's and 1990's, early digital journals and serials 
published by librarians (as distinct from libraries), library-based 
scholarly publishing since the Budapest Open Access Initiative, 
technical publishing infrastructure, and library and university press 
mergers/partnerships and other relevant works.

Most sources have been published from January 2002 through July 2018; 
however, a limited number of earlier key sources are also included. The 
bibliography has links to included works. Abstracts are included in this 
bibliography if a work is under a Creative Commons Attribution License 
(BY and national/international variations), a Creative Commons public 
domain dedication (CC0), or a Creative Commons Public Domain Mark and 
this is clearly indicated in the work.
