Priorities for the conference:

  1. Library Trials: Meet collection development librarians and those librarians who act as department liaisons with faculty. Raise awareness of LPP, and secure new library trial partners. 
  2. Call for Proposals: Find new authors who are interested in writing books for one of our 13 collections – either directly or via recommendations from department liaison librarians.

RESEARCH: Author Identity Metadata: Establishing Top-Level Categories [SURVEY]

We invite you to participate in our brief survey to help establish an author-led set of standards for identity metadata. Please feel free to share this survey with authors, librarians, and publishing professionals – we will be publishing the results of our research. 

About the Publisher

Lived Places Publishing (LPP) is building a catalog of applied and concise course reading material in interdisciplinary collections. Each title we publish explores the intersection of identity and place, humanizing an issue through lived experience(s).

Our 2023 Library Collection is 40 titles. It is delivered with libraries in mind:

  • DRM-free, unlimited user access, and unrestricted PDF download of titles
  • Whole ebook interlibrary loan to one partner institution at a time
  • Affordable, perpetual access pricing with region-appropriate discounts to ensure every university across the globe can own the LPP collection
  • 5% of all sales set aside to fund author-choice open access publishing at our average production cost (actual costs to be published on our website and updated every six months)

As we develop our publishing program, we look forward to more feedback and guidance from the library community. To this end, we are offering open-ended trials throughout 2023.

We are growing quickly, with 19 books published to date and 80+ more in development. 9 institutions have purchased our 2023 Library Collection so far, including Georgetown University, University of Toronto, and Cambridge University.

Each LPP book includes learning objectives, recommended assignments and discussion guides, and is written at a length (100-150 pages) to be completed in 2-3 weeks of a course. Lived Places Publishing books are written to bring theory and concept to life and to illustrate the theories and concepts that underpin the curriculum in each discipline we publish to.

Libraries: Become a trial partner

Authors: Call for proposals
