Conference Announcement and CFP: 2nd Annual Library Publishing Forum

Conference Announcement and CFP: 2nd Annual Library Publishing Forum 
Date: March 29-30, 2015
Location: Portland State University, Portland, Oregon

We are pleased to announce the second annual Library Publishing Forum and issue a call for presentation proposals. This year’s theme is Creating and Supporting Sustainable Publishing Programs and we invite proposals for a variety of formats and relevant topics.  For further details, please see this website

This event will bring together representatives from libraries engaged in (or considering) publishing initiatives to define and address major questions and challenges; to identify and document collaborative opportunities; to strengthen and promote this community of practice; and to advance this vibrant subfield of academic publishing. 

We encourage library publishers (and friends of library publishing) to submit proposals and/or attend the Forum, including both administrators and technical staff charged with this important scholarly communications function. The Library Publishing Forum will include representatives from a broad, international spectrum of academic library backgrounds, as well as groups that collaborate with libraries to publish scholarly works including the digital humanities. You do not need to be a member of the LPC to attend this event.

Please check the website for registration information.
