LPC is a library led, two-year initiative to advance the field of library publishing.

Based on core library values, our mission is to foster collaboration, share knowledge and develop common practices, all in service of publishing and distributing academic and scholarly works. Our goal is to explore how to better serve the scholarly communication needs of the academic community, through sustainable, innovative library publishing solutions aligned with institutional missions.

LPC participants currently include more than 50 college and university libraries. We are open to any academic library seeking to explore and define new publishing solutions. We actively seek strategic alliances and connections to organizations with similar values and interests.
