Library as Publisher: From Gatekeeper to Gardener
Friday, November 13th
Moran Prairie Library 6004 S Regal Street Spokane, WA
The Digital Publishing Revolution is here at last, ushering in a host of new possibilities, among them Open Ac-cess scholarship, and the ability to be co-creators of self-published content. But it has also highlighted some key business problems for libraries, pub-lishers, distributors, and authors, such as predatory publishing and un-sustainable licensing mod-els. At this most exciting time in our history, will li-braries be bold enough to understand and embrace disruption — or be passive victims to market forces we can’t be bothered to challenge?
Jamie LaRue has appeared on NPR, been quoted and highlighted in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and the Denver Post, and has hosted a local author interview TV program. A newspaper columnist for over two decades, he also wrote The New Inquisition: Understanding and Managing Intellectual Freedom Challenges. He is a frequent presenter for library associations, regional workshops, and library staff days. From 1990 to 2014, he was director of the Douglas County (Co.) Libraries, widely known as one of the most successful and innovative public libraries in the nation. He was the Colo-rado Librarian of the Year in 1998, the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce’s 2003 Business Person of the Year, in 2007 won the Julie J. Boucher Award for Intellectual Freedom, and in 2013 won the Colorado Association of Libraries’ Career Achievement Award. In 2014, he embarked on a career of writing, speaking, teaching, and consulting.
