Library Publishing Unconference

In edition to over 50 sessions, the Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L) Conference is pleased to host a Library Publishing Unconference at ER&L 2013. Register for the Library Publishing Unconference in Austin, TX on March 19 sponsored by ER&L today!

Library Publishing Unconference | Tuesday, March 19

Interested in open access publishing? Curious how the library can support and/or supplement the university press? Wondering how to better help your faculty meet compliance guidelines with regards to their research? Join us for an afternoon unconference session on Library publishing.

We will only discuss what YOU are interested in – no sage on the stage here. Participation required (and the only way to really learn).

About the facilitators… Amy Buckland is the eScholarship, ePublishing & Digitization Coordinator at McGill University Library, where she is responsible for scholarly communication, online and print publishing initiatives, digitization of the library’s special collections, and other awesome stuff like digital humanities and data management. Prior to joining the library world, she worked in publishing for 14 years, including six years with the journals division of Cambridge University Press. Amy was named a Library Journal Mover & Shaker in 2008, and a SLA Rising Star in 2010. Elle est fière d’être Montréalaise, and thinks academic libraryland is ripe for a revolution.

Margy Avery is the Senior Aquisitions Editor at MIT Press, where she has been working in scholarly communication and publishing for about ten years, a field in which she is a major advocate for change and reform. She works closely with the scholarly communities in STS, Information Science, Communications, and Internet Studies and these interactions inform her thinking as to the value of scholarly publishers as well as the severe limitations they place on rapidly changing models of scholarship. She’s especially interested to learn more about how scholars are thinking about their research, research objects, and publication.
