[NYLINE] Final NY3Rs Lunchtime Conversation – July 17
Library as Publisher: What’s Next for New York?
July 17, 2014
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Host: Kathy Miller, Executive Director, RRLC/NY3Rs
Guest: Pamela McLaughlin of Syracuse University
Digital publishing has fundamentally altered who can be a publisher, along with the formats and devices in which the content is consumed – or what is being published. Libraries have a big role to play in this transformation.
Our series of “Library as Publisher” online Brown Bag discussion has focused on some specific applications in academic and public libraries but many of these suggestions may be adapted to any library, regardless of type.
Pamela McLaughlin of Syracuse University, a member of the I2NY Library as Publisher Working Group, will start us off by discussing in more detail the genesis of the I2NY Library as Publisher initiative, the work group tht has been directing the activities, and planning for the future. She will encourage participants in this “capstone” discussion to start thinking about the questions that have driven this project and encourage a robust “chat” on what this may mean. With so many varied opportunities available for libraries to become publishers, how will they decide which path to take? Moreover, what are the potential impacts of publishing activity on traditional library practices?
Kathy Miller, will wind up the hour by talking more about the goals and requirements that detail the next phase for this project – the I2NY Library as Publisher Incubator Grant opportunity.
