Abstract

In May 2019, the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana was awarded a $525,000 grant from Lilly Endowment to improve student success and retention by supporting the use of open course materials across the 24 private institutional members. Since then, the PALSave administration team has reached over 100 faculty members across Indiana, created an adoption pilot program, and received over 40 faculty reviews for the Open Textbook Library. Now, PALSave is developing a publishing program, with full funding for five textbook creations over five years. The Butler University Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Team conducted a Digital Needs Assessment Survey and found that over 28% of their faculty were interested in textbook and other open access publishing initiatives. The Scholarly Communication Team is currently developing an independent publishing co-op to support the many faculty coming to us with publishing ideas. This session will outline how the Scholarly Communication Team was able to create a separate publishing co-op while still maintaining it’s active participation in the PALSave publishing co-op.
