Robin Chin Roemer (Author), Rachel Borchardt (Author)
Research libraries have engaged in publishing activities in the past, but recently there has been intense growth in the number of library publishing services supporting faculty and students. Unified by a commitment to both access and service, library publishing programs have grown from an early focus on backlist digitization to publication of student works, textbooks, and research data. This growing engagement with publishing is a natural and research data. This growing engagement with publishing is a natural extension of the academic library's commitment to support the creation of and access to scholarship. Getting the Word Out examines the growing trend in library publishing with 11 chapters by some of the most talented thinkers in the field. Edited by library publishing experts Maria Bonn, of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Graduate School of Library and Information Science, and Mike Furlough, HathiTrust Digital Library, this book deepens current discussions in the field, and provides decision makers and practitioners with an introduction to the state of the field with an eye towards future prospects. -- from back cover
