New Resource: NY3RS Releases Library Publishing Toolkit
From the NY3Rs Association:
The Library Publishing Toolkit [edited by Allison P. Brown] looks at the broad and varied landscape of library publishing through discussions, case studies, and shared resources. From supporting writers, authors, and filmmakers in the public library setting to academic libraries hosting open access journals and books, this collection examines opportunities for libraries to leverage their skills and resources to curate, create and provide access to content.
The Library Publishing Toolkit is a project funded partially by the Regional Bibliographic Data Bases and Interlibrary Resources Sharing Program funds which are administered and supported by the Rochester Regional Library Council, a member of the NY 3Rs Association, Inc. The Toolkit is an important component in one of the top NY3Rs Information Infrastructure for New York (I2NY) priorities: “Changing the role of libraries from transactional to transformational by … inserting the library as early as possible in the creative process.”
The toolkit is a united effort between Milne Library at SUNY Geneseo and the Monroe County Library System to identify trends in library publishing, seek out best practices to implement and support such programs, and share the best tools and resources.
