Come Meet David Parker at the Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L) Conference, Austin, TX

March 6-8, 2023

Lived Places Publishing (LPP) will be exhibiting at this year’s Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L) Conference in Austin, TX.

Come to our booth and meet our Founder and Publisher, David Parker.

To set up a meeting in advance, please EMAIL DAVID directly.

Taking appointments: MON 3/6, TUE 3/7, WED 3/8: In-person & online/phone

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 12 collections – either directly or via recommendations from department liaison librarians.

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).

We just launched our first collection of 40 titles for the 2023 collection. 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 feedback and guidance from the library community. To this end, we are offering open-ended trials throughout 2023. We have 5 institutions on board who have begun in January 2023, and we invite you to take part.

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
