A very welcome development –
The Library Publishing Coalition, a community-led membership association for library publishers, will expand membership to libraries outside North America, effective July 1, 2015.
The LPC supports an evolving, distributed range of publishing practices and furthers the interests of library publishers. It promotes collaboration, knowledge sharing, and networking among libraries and between libraries and other publishers, especially university presses.
Academic and research libraries and library consortia anywhere in the world are invited to complete a membership application at http://www.librarypublishing.org/join/membership-application.
