Library-Press Collaborations Poster Presentation
ACRL NY Symposium (2013)
  • Charlotte Roh, University of Massachusetts Amherst
In order to better understand the new evolving relationships between university presses and academic libraries, a review of press and library collaborations was undertaken by the University of Arizona (UA) Press and the UA Libraries through the Association of Research Libraries Career Enhancement Program (ARL CEP). The ARL CEP Fellow reviewed existing literature, interviewed staff at the University of Arizona, and conducted 27 informal interviews with library deans, press directors, and scholarly communications leaders. The interviews addressed the partnership history, structure, motivations, goals and needs, administrative support and budget decisions, key stakeholders, and thoughts on the future of their relationships as well as scholarly communications. The study explored UA perceptions of the library and press, and asked the staff to consider current challenges and future steps. The final report reviews trends and makes recommendations for collaboration and healthy relationships.
