Abstract
Why should libraries be interested in publishing? And how should they go about getting started with a publishing program? What are the aims and values that should drive the effort? Should it follow the examples of the university presses and other scholarly publishers, or is there need for a new basis and approach to scholarly communication? What are appropriate products, formats, and workflows? How does one deal with authors and other participants in the process? Paul Royster, a library publisher for the past 10 years (and a “regular” publisher for 20 years before that) will address these and related issues, with emphasis on the motivational aspects and the rewards of the experience
