[InetBib] Call for 2021 Entries: Library Publishing Directory and IFLA Library Publishing SIG Database

**Apologies for cross-posting**

Dear colleagues,

The Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) and the International Federation of 
Library Associations (IFLA) Library Publishing Special Interest Group  (LibPub 
SIG) are partnering to survey the landscape of scholarly publishing in 
libraries across the globe. LPC is seeking submissions for its 8th annual 
Library Publishing Directory. IFLA's LibPub SIG will create a first-of-its-kind 
online database of global library publishing initiatives. Together, we invite 
you to share information about your library's scholarly publishing activities.

All participating libraries will create a brief profile that will appear in 
both organizations' online databases. Libraries that wish to be included in the 
print, PDF, and EPUB Library Publishing Directory can go on to fill out the 
full questionnaire (30-45 minutes to complete). Get started at  

(If your library has had an entry in a previous edition of the Directory, you 
should have received an email with instructions on how to update it. Email 
contact@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:contact@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> with 

While this year the questions are in English, in future we hope to be able to 
translate them into IFLA's official languages. Responses in English are 
strongly preferred; we may not be able to include responses in other languages.

The call for entries will close on Monday, September 14, 2020.

Thank you for joining in this great international collaboration. We look 
forward to your participation.

About the Library Publishing Directory:

The Library Publishing Directory is an important tool for libraries wishing to 
learn about this emerging field, connect with their peers, and align their 
practices with those of the broader community. Last year's edition featured 
over 150 libraries in almost a dozen nations. The Directory is published openly 
on the web in PDF, EPUB, and as an online database. It includes contact 
information, descriptions, and other key facts about each library's publishing 
services. A print version of the Directory is also produced.

The 2021 edition will be published in early 2021.

About the IFLA Library Publishing SIG database:

The goal of the LibPub SIG database is to document more fully the publishing 
activities to which IFLA's members contribute, in order to facilitate a global 
community of interest and support. While this first year the focus is on 
scholarly/academic library publishers, in the future the SIG plans to open 
submissions to all types of library publishers: academic, public, and others.

Submissions will appear in an IFLA-related searchable database, easily 
accessible by IFLA members and friends, including LPC members.
