Description

This report briefly presents the findings and recommendations of the
"Library Publishing Services: Strategies for Success" project which
investigated the extent to which publishing has now become a core activity
of North American academic libraries and suggested ways in which further
capacity could be built. The research described (consisting of a survey,
some case studies, three workshops, and a set of further reading
recommendations) was mainly conducted between October 1, 2010, and
September 30, 2011. It was supported by a grant from the Institute for
Museum and Libraries Studies, made to Purdue University Libraries in
collaboration with the Libraries of the Georgia Institute of Technology and
the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah.

Related resources to this document are the preliminary report of November
2011 which contains appendices that describe the research activities in
general and an HTML version hosted on Comment Press that allows community
comments to be posted.
