Publarians and Lubishers: Role Bending in the New Scholarly Communications Ecosystem

Other Article (Essay)

It has been said that the work of publishers and librarians will merge over time until we are all publarians and lublishers. Do we still envision a shared future? As new publishing programs within libraries and experimental publisher-library collaborations continue to challenge us to move outside of our comfort zones, are we learning from each other? What are some practical, down-to-earth ways that we can take advantage of each other’s expertise? How can we produce and market scholarly content in a more integrated way to meet the needs of scholars in a digital-information ecosystem, without duplicating effort on separate tracks? How might we address sustainability through combined, hybrid business models? In this session, some experienced experimenters and role benders in the world of the humanities will share lessons learned and attempt to chart a way forward to a shared future.
