Description

Introductory slides to a panel at the conference "Publishing in Libraries," delivered on March 20, 2015 at the College at Brockport, State University of New York. The panel abstract follows:

Over the last two decades, in tandem with the building support for open access worldwide, academic libraries of all sizes have expanded their support of public dissemination of research beyond their walls. Through the establishment of institutional repositories, libraries are openly sharing articles, presentations, media, and data files published elsewhere. In a related -- but in some ways strikingly different -- role, libraries are acting as publishers of new content through journals, monographs, and new media. We are going to discuss some questions and opportunities that emerge from the dual role many libraries now occupy, the "repository as publisher," and the strategies employed at their institutions to manage them.
