ARL Study of Library Publishing Results Available

York recently participated in a study on Library Publishing. The results have now been published and are available online.

In addition to the survey information ARL members provided, the final report is also based on a set of follow-up interviews that some institutions participated in. As the report notes, “The survey verified that research libraries are rapidly developing publishing services. By late 2007, 44% of the 80 responding ARL member libraries reported they were delivering publishing services and another 21% were in the process of planning publishing service development. Only 36% of responding institutions were not active in this arena…. The question is no longer whether libraries should offer publishing services, but what kinds of services libraries will offer.
