*Wednesday, March 7, Library as Publisher, Part One*

Library as Publisher: Current Status and Impact on Scholarly Communication

An increasing number of university libraries have assumed responsibility
for scholarly communication activities and university presses. This event
will bring together professionals from a variety of institutions, asking
them to address what the challenges have been for them, name their
successes, and articulate their vision for the future.

*Confirmed Speakers: Carol Ann Davis*, Director of Digital Scholarship
Services, University of South Florida Libraries;  *Andrew Wesolek*, Head of
Digital Scholarship, Clemson University Libraries; *Johanna Meetz*,
Scholarly Communications and Publishing Services Librarian and Associate
Director of Pacific University Press, Pacific University

Here’s what these speakers will be addressing:

Libraries face many challenges when initiating library publishing
operations. This relatively new aspect of librarianship is not yet part of
library school curricula, and some are still struggling to determine the
skills needed for this area. The three speakers will discuss their
experiences in library publishing at their separate institutions with
distinct publishing environments. The University of South Florida
<> published their first open access journal
in 2007 and has no university press. Clemson University Libraries
<> began publishing operations in 2013 and
has some joint publishing efforts with Clemson University Press
<>, which is
administratively distinct from the Libraries.  Pacific University Press
<> was founded in 2015 by the Libraries as
a hybrid open access publisher, and librarians perform both traditional
university press and library publishing operations. The speakers will share
successes and challenges they have encountered in initiating their
publishing operations and their vision for the future. They will also
discuss the NASIG Core Competencies for Scholarly Communication Librarians
and the upcoming Library Publishing Curriculum
<> from Educopia and the
Library Publishing Coalition. They will offer suggestions on how these
tools can be applied to organize a new publishing operation, create job
descriptions, and train new employees.

Library as Publisher: UX and UI for the Library’s Digital Collections

Just how good (or how bad) are the Web-based interfaces encountered by
library users these days? Having invested in the creation of significant
digital collections, how can libraries enhance usage of those collections?
How do scholars and students (especially those working remotely) expect to
engage with this content online? What should the interfaces be designed to
support? Is there a baseline that has been established? What room exists
for innovation in the user experience (UX) and user interface (UI)?

*Confirmed Speakers:  Rachel Vacek*, Head of Design & Discovery, University
of Michigan Library; *Salwa Ismail*, Department Head of Library Information
Technology, Georgetown University; *Daniel Tracy*, Library Information
Science & Digital Humanities Librarian, University of Illinois
