Digital Commons Community Webinars: Library-Led Publishing and OA Textbooks

I'd like to invite you to the first two webinars in our 2012-2013 Digital Commons Community Webinar series. These two presentations will explore an aspect of library-led publishing that many are beginning to explore: books.  Both the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and Grand Valley State University are successfully expanding their IR services by publishing full-length works through the repository.  

In the first webinar, Paul Royster (Coordinator of Scholarly Communication at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln) will share strategies for launching library publishing services for books and monographs, including tips on developing policies, working with authors, and providing print-on-demand.

In the second, Sarah Beaubien (Scholarly Communications Outreach Coordinator) and Charles Lowe (Assistant Professor of Writing) of Grand Valley State University will share their success in bringing students targeted, high-quality texts at minimal or no cost.
