Library as Publishing Agent: Exploring New Roles
Academic libraries of all sizes can and must strategically position themselves as campus publishers. One means of doing this is to implement an Institutional Repository, providing opportunities to showcase senior theses, dissertations, award-winning papers, and student and faculty peer-reviewed journals. The Academic Librarians Section (ALS) presented Marilyn Billings from UMass Amherst to explain how this works in her library.
