1. What does it mean for a public library to become a publisher?

    Public libraries have been publishers before, largely of annual reports, bulletins, and printed catalogs of special collections–items that are now integrated into the catalog itself or available online. More recently, libraries have facilitated the self-publishing efforts of their communities, such as Sacramento Public Library’s iStreet Press and Temecula Public Library’s Flash Books! And academic libraries have entered the scholarly publishing business in increasing numbers: the Library Publishing Coalition’s first directory lists 115 academic and research libraries engaged in publishing efforts.

    But what might publishing by a local library look like?
