University presses have their work cut out for them with the growing demands of a complex industry and increasingly sophisticated and diverse readership. Digital publishing is the order of the day and publishers must produce digitized content that caters to an omnichannel market. In addition, there is the fiscal and the ethical need to address disabled end users by making content accessible across digital channels. Other challenges include the emergence of open access as a viable publishing model and an increased need to make content discoverable.
It is helpful for university presses to partner with end-to-end service providers who understand these market dynamics, are driven by technology, and are equipped with a smart digital strategy to maximize content consumption.
The publishing environment for libraries has drastically changed with the rise of digital publishing. Partnerships between university presses and libraries have increased in which libraries offer technology support for handling archival material, indexing, metadata, and related services for open access.
For publishing open access journals, developing subscription-based journal publishing programs, publishing monographs, and digitizing and publishing parts of physical collections, you may require a partner who provides end-to-end services to take you from project management to distribution. The importance and the legal imperative of providing accessibility to people with disabilities have gained momentum and libraries need to address this as well.
