Course Readings with a Focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Priced Affordably for Institutional Access:
No Direct Cost to Students

Faculty are increasingly seeking materials from a broader, more diverse range of authors and subject areas to augment their courses and meet the needs of their students. 

Lived Places Publishing (LPP) exists to support faculty in this goal. We publish 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).

Student access and affordability is top-of-mind for most faculty as well. That's why we make our complete annual collection of titles available to your university library. The LPP Library Collection includes unlimited access and unlimited user ebooks, which really helps in keeping direct costs to students at zero. 

The collection pricing for the university is very low on a per-title basis. And your campus librarian will appreciate the fact we offer ebook interlibrary loan (ILL) rights, no restrictions on printing and downloading, and that a percentage of each sale goes to supporting our funding of author-selected open access.

We offer unlimited, unrestricted, university-wide free trials to allow campus librarians to make an informed decision before committing to purchasing. Here is the link to share with your library liaison: https://livedplacespublishing.com/page/librarians
