2016 LPC Award for Outstanding Scholarship in Library Publishing
As participation in library publishing grows, the development of a strong evidence base to inform best practices and demonstrate impact is essential. To encourage research and theoretical work about library publishing services, the Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) has created the Award for Outstanding Scholarship in Library Publishing. The award recognizes significant and timely contributions to library publishing theory and practice.
The inaugural recipients of the award were Ann Okerson and Alex Holzman, for their report "The Once and Future Publishing Library." Their work was nominated for providing an excellent retrospective and prospective view of the rapidly changing field of libraries as publishers in 2015.
Okerson and Holzman's work was formally recognized at the 2016 Library Publishing Forum in Denton, Texas. They also received a cash award of $250, travel support to attend the Forum, and an opportunity to present their work.
