Dear Colleagues,

Does your library publish journals, monographs, conference proceedings, or
technical reports? Do you provide hosting and support services for digital
humanities projects, data, or ETDs?

Help us to document the range of activities that libraries are undertaking
in “publishing” (broadly defined) through their work in scholarly
communications, digital humanities, digital sciences, and institutional

To promote collaboration and knowledge-sharing, and to raise the visibility
of the unique contributions of libraries as “publishers,” the Library
Publishing Coalition (LPC) is compiling the fourth edition of our *Library
Publishing Directory
<http://www.librarypublishing.org/resources/directory/lpd2017>*. We are
particularly interested this year in improving global representation in the
*Directory* and encourage entries from libraries around the world.

To have a profile of your library included in the *Directory*, please
complete our questionnaire at:


*The survey will close on August 30.*

The questionnaire takes between 30 and 45 minutes to complete. We
recommend previewing
the questions
you begin.

The Library Publishing Directory is an important tool for libraries wishing
to learn about this emerging field, connect with their peers, and align
their practices with those of the broader community. Last year's edition
featured 125 libraries in half a dozen nations. It was downloaded over 400

The Directory is published openly on the web and will include contact
information, descriptions, and other key facts about each library's
publishing services. Previous editions (in PDF, EPUB, MOBI, and database
versions) can be found at

Please e-mail Sarah Lippincott (sarah at educopia.org) with questions or
comments. We look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
