The Library Publishing Coalition and the Educopia Institute, in collaboration with the Digital Library Federation (DLF), is hosting a pair of in-person workshops at the 2018 DLF Forum based on the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-funded series of pilot workshops called “Developing a Curriculum to Advance Library-Based Publishing”.

Both full-day workshops (descriptions below) will take place on Sunday, October 14 at the M Resort just outside of Las Vegas, NV. Each workshop is limited to 20 participants, to be selected through a brief application process.

Library Publishing Curriculum: Content – The Content Workshop covers how library publishers attract, select, edit, manage, and disseminate content. It includes information about how to recruit partners and select content for a program, and how to incorporate diverse voices into each part of the publication process. It also shares information about common production workflows, identifying the resources and staff skills needed to support various editorial strategies and content types.

Library Publishing Curriculum: Sustainability – The Sustainability workshop will focus on how library publishing endeavors can establish longevity and find long-term success. Attendees will learn how to build support with key stakeholders and communities, both internally and externally, and how to undertake digital preservation to prolong the lifespan of digital publications.
