Thank you for your interest in our 2023 collection: https://livedplacespublishing.com/librarians
Lived Places Publishing is offering open-ended trials throughout 2023 – and we invite you to take part.
Typically, libraries run a trial for 30 to 90 days. But we are flexible – the length and nature of this trial can be defined by you & your institutional needs. We understand the importance of not interrupting student or faculty access mid-semester, and we aim to fit into your institution’s academic course planning cycles.
To begin a trial – or for more information on our trial process, our pricing, or our publishing plan – please email our Founder and Publisher, David Parker: Email David
If you are ready to get started, we will be delighted to set up access for you & your library users. To begin, please share your library's Public Static IP (PSI) address (for example, 22.214.171.124 or an IP range as well) for us to set up access to our collection for your library users. If you are not familiar with PSI, you may need to contact your information technology (IT) team. And please note that once we have your PSI, we may need a day or two to provide access.
For most libraries, the above method will work. If not, here's an alternate approach for us to try: If your IT team recommends using your existing identity platforms (for example, Microsoft AD, Shibboleth, OpenAthens, etc.), then please ask your IT administrator to configure the following connection details: https://livedplacespublishing.com/shibboleth
If your institution has other preferences, we will try to accommodate – please email our Founder and Publisher, David Parker: Email David
Our first set of MARC records is nearly ready – you'll be able to source the MARC data in our Library Resource Center. More details forthcoming.
Our system can be directly integrated with EZProxy user authentication. This link can be configured into EZProxy to connect: https://livedplacespublishing.com/shibboleth
Starting this term, we will be able to supply usage stats – you'll have access to COUNTER-5 compliant usage data. More details forthcoming.
