Library Publishing


5th and 6th of March


IFLAs  Special Interest Group on Library Publishing ( SIG Library Publishing) invites you to attend the annual Midterm Meeting at OsloMet — Oslo Metropolitan University in Oslo, Norway. Get inspiration for the future work with library publishing and meet up with colleagues and friends from all over the world at the same time.

On Library Publishing

Library publishing (including new-model university presses housed in libraries) is a growing activity in many countries around the world.  The IFLA SIG aims to bring together experienced practitioners and would-be publishers to build network, to share information and advance this exciting field of endeavor. New and emerging library publishers will gain insight into the experiences and practices of established presses, and all attendees will learn from new and innovative approaches. The presentations from both sides and the ensuing discussions will advance the excellence and sustainability of library publishing ventures
