Notes

Abstract: A growing number of academic libraries are moving beyond acquiring content from scholarly publishers and acting as publishers in their own right, usually online but sometimes also in print and e-book formats. The roots of these activities lie in major research libraries with digital library infrastructure providing scholarly publishing venues as an alternative to commercial scholarly publishers, but the locus of activity is increasing in providing alternative, and often open, textbooks. This presentation will provide an overview of these activities and of the Library Publishing Coalition, a consortium of academic libraries that supports a strong community of practice. Activities related to legal literature will be highlighted.
