AbstractThis presentation was given at the Publishing in Libraries Conference at the College at Brockport, State University of New York on March 20, 2015 as part of a panel discussion entitled 'The repository as publisher: opportunities and challenges in a dual role', with Benjamin Hockenberry, Jessica Clemons, and Timothy Deliyannides. The presentation gives an overview of the evolution of the publishing program at the University of Pittsburgh beginning with the dissemination of new scholarly content through author self-archiving repositories and leading to the publication of scholarly peer-reviewed journals with partners located around the world. Pitt's journal publishing program is detailed. The presentation highlights the library's unique perspective, values, and commitment to openly sharing scholarly research in all its forms worldwide.
