Abstract

Formed in 2012, the Purdue University Libraries Publishing Division creates a collaborative environment uniting the Purdue University Press and Scholarly Publishing Services. The Publishing Division is dedicated to enhancing the impact and reach of academic research and scholarship through the development and dissemination of books, journals, digital collections, innovative electronic products, technical report series, and conference proceedings. Through the integration and collaboration of Purdue University Press and Scholarly Publishing Services, the Purdue University Libraries Publishing Division has become a leader in its capacity to produce high-quality publications serving a continuum of scholarly publishing needs across the University and beyond.

This session will highlight the evolution, business models, benefits, and opportunities of a traditional university press collaborating with fellow information professionals in the Libraries and across the university. Thereby providing sustainable and targeted services to support faculty, staff, and students at all stages of the scholarly communication process, as well as scholars working beyond the confines of Purdue.
