Charleston Library Conference 

Mar 12, 2018

This week, on Episode 51, we’re featuring the audio from a previously recorded webcast titled “Library as Publisher: New Models of Scholarly Communication for a New Era.” It broadcast live on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. The session was moderated by Matthew Ismail, Director of Collection Development at Central Michigan University and Editor in Chief of the Charleston Briefings. It was presented by Sarah Lippincott, Scholarly Communications and Digital Scholarship Consultant, and Isaac Gilman, Dean of University Libraries at Pacific University (Oregon), and founder and Director of the Pacific University Press.

Sarah Lippincott is the author of a book in the Charleston Briefings series that the webcast and a session at the 2017 Charleston Conference were based on. Her open access e-book, and more information on the Charleston Briefings can be found at

The video recording, slides, poll results, and more are available on the Charleston Conference website at the link in the show notes. Thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoy the presentation.
