Libraries are increasingly offering services related to publishing, ranging from online hosting of open-access journals or textbooks to a fuller set of publishing services related to publishing journals and books. While these bring benefits to the creators of these works, they also present challenges for library staff members, who sometimes have preconceived notions about the ease of publishing but come to realize that it can be harder than it looks. Panelists engaged in various types of library-based publishing will share their experiences and discuss the people, tools, and resources they rely on to establish and sustain a library publishing program.
