The infrastructure that supports the creation, dissemination and ongoing location of research is increasingly being acquired and commercialized by for-profit publishers, while established mission-driven, non-profit publishers such as university presses struggle to stay afloat. In this panel, representatives from three libraries and the Library Publishing Coalition will talk about the work library publishers are doing in a number of priority areas, including providing affordable open access publishing opportunities, advancing library values through ethical publishing initiatives, and partnering with university presses to grow support for mission-driven publishing. Panelists will briefly introduce three open source publishing platforms: Editoria (University of California), Fulcrum (University of Michigan), and Vega (Wayne State University). They will discuss how their work on these platforms is both advancing strategic goals at their libraries and addressing institutional challenges that exist within an increasingly "locked-in" commercial publishing infrastructure for scholarly communication.
