Join us to learn how libraries can build collections, support writers' access to digital publishing platforms and democratize access to publishing.
Opening Access to Digital Publishing
OSU Libraries & Press is exploring ways to offer digital publishing by hosting Scalar, an open-source content management system. Used to publish supplementary content, showcase local history, and create multi-narrative stories, it frees otherwise encased materials.
Building a Local Ebook Collection
The Library Writers Project is a collection development and programming initiative by the Multnomah County Library to provide an avenue for local authors to get their self-published e-books into the library collection. We will discuss the development of the project and how to replicate this program at other libraries.
