        Sustaining Scholarly Publishing: New Business Models for University Presses

        Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, University Presses on March 7th, 2011

        The Association of American University Presses has released Sustaining Scholarly Publishing: New Business Models for University Presses.

        Here's an excerpt from the press release:

        Within the scholarly communications ecosystem, scholarly publishers are a keystone species. University presses—as well as academic societies, research institutions, and other scholarly publishers—strive to fulfill the mission of making public the fruits of scholarly research as effectively as possible within that ecosystem. While that mission has remained constant, in recent years the landscape in which it is carried out has altered dramatically.

        "Sustaining Scholarly Publishing" explores many current scholarly publishing experiments and initiatives, defines characteristics of effective business models and the challenges of transitioning from a traditional sales-based model, and presents several recommendations for sustaining high-quality scholarly publishing throughout this time of change. The AAUP report was prepared by the Task Force on Economic Models for Scholarly Publishing, chaired by Lynne Withey, now-retired director of the University of California Press. . . .

        Among the report's recommendations:

        • Active and open sharing of lessons learned by participants in existing digital publishing projects should be an ongoing process.
        • The support of foundations, libraries, and university administrations in providing funds to work toward the digital future has been, and will remain, crucial.
        • Open access is a principle to be embraced, if publishing costs can be supported by the larger scholarly enterprise. University presses, and nonprofit publishers generally, should be fully engaged in these discussions.
        • Proposals and plans for new business models should explicitly address the potential impact of the new model on other parts of a press's programs, as well as explicitly address the requirements, both operational and financial, for making the transition to a new model.

                Posted in Digital Library Jobs on March 6th, 2011

                The University of Florida Libraries are recruiting a Chair, Digital Services and Shared Collections. Minimum salary is $75,00 or $85,000 depending on rank.

                Here's an excerpt from the ad:

                Chair, Digital Services and Shared Collections, is responsible for internal and outsourced digitization, and plays a key role in the coordination of preservation and access to digital and shared print academic library collections in Florida. The Chair will be responsible for adopting a business model approach, designing efficient and productive workflows, and for effectively communicating vision and goals to donors, partners, and a variety of other internal and external constituents and partners. A major component of the role is to promote organized collaboration between internal and outsourced digital services, preservation/conservation of all Smathers Libraries collections as well as the shared print collection, and processing for the storage and retrieval of shared print collections.

                Upon appointment, the Chair will lead the Digital Library Center (DLC) and related digital services including the Institutional Repository (IR), as well as having reporting responsibilities for Preservation and Shared Collections Processing. The Chair will also participate in the planning for the new complex and the Shared Collections. Initial partners for the Shared Collections include all of the State University Libraries (SUL) and at least one private university in Florida. After the completion of the new complex (anticipated in 2013-2014), the Digital Services and Preservation units will relocate from Smathers Library to the renovated facility and the chair will assume responsibility for managing the complex.

                As a prominent partner in national and state cooperative ventures, the Chair will negotiate agreements, manage business operations and identify ways to actively market and promote the collections and services. This will require collaboration with subject specialists, curators and other library staff, as well as patrons, external constituents and not-for-profit, commercial, and academic partners.
