Lived Places Publishing was launched with supporting libraries, librarians, and faculty in mind. We publish applied and concise course reading material in interdisciplinary collections. Each title we publish explores the intersection of identity/identities and place. Our books represent a global editorial and authorial community.

LPP titles are available in print and ebook, in single title through aggregators and ebook platforms, and our annual collection is available for direct purchase with no DRM, whole ebook ILL rights, and with each purchase contributing to our funding of open access publishing.
