University Presses and Library Publishing Organizations Promote Knowledge Sharing
The Cross-Pollination Conference Registration Waiver aims to promote greater interconnectivity between members of the Association of University Presses and the Library Publishing Coalition. The program helps two people from each organization’s membership to attend the other’s annual meeting, and share knowledge between the communities.
Recipients of a waiver to attend the 2019 Library Publishing Forum are: Meredith Carruthers, Managing & Production Editor at Concordia University Press; and Laraine Coates, Marketing Manager at the University of British Columbia Press. Recipients of a waiver to attend the 2019 AUPresses Annual Meeting are: Sherri Barnes, Scholarly Communication Program Coordinator at the University of California, Santa Barbara; and Dave S. Ghamandi, Open Publishing Librarian at the University of Virginia.
After attending the meetings, this cohort of 4 cross-pollinators will provide public reports on their experience. In addition to creating collegial networks between the two communities, this program is intended to encourage future collaboration between the two organizations.
Congratulations to these worthy recipients!
