The growth of library publishing and of collaborations between libraries and university presses signals a desire both to challenge and complement long established scholarly publishing practices. What problems might these perceived solutions actually solve, and how might such partnerships actually benefit their host institutions, in the context of rapidly changing expectations of students, faculty, and administrators?

This will be a presentation in two parts. In the first part, Andrew Barker and Anthony Cond will showcase an innovative publishing partnership between Liverpool University Press and the University of Liverpool Library (together with a compendious knowledge of the Beatles back catalogue). They will describe exciting initiatives involving article scholarship and etextbooks in an open access environment, and the implications for publishing.  In the second part, Tony Horava will describe a fruitful partnership between the University of Ottawa Library and the University of Ottawa Press for publishing scholarly monographs as open access. This program has broadened dissemination, use, and visibility of the press’s books.  Together we will demonstrate that library/press collaboration is here to stay and is ‘getting better all the time’!
