This might be a bit similar to what Mike Furlough and Monica McCormick proposed in “Professional Cultures”, but I’m proposing a session in which we wrestle specifically with how, exactly (I’m thinking we draw up a list), the Digital Library Federation can help people who want to do publishing in libraries. Is it a technical infrastructure? Policy changes? Institutional reorganization? Best practices documents? All or none of the above?
It isn’t just a theoretical question, either — we’ll have an opportunity to present the results of this session at the DLF meeting the very next day, in our panel on “New Modes of Publishing.”
