Libraries and the impact of self-publishing on humanities and social science publishing
The self-publishing revolution has created a drastic increase in the number or works being published in the social sciences and humanities. This windfall of content has created an abundance that can be overwhelming, but it ultimately presents an opportunity for libraries to develop deeper and more unique collections.

Who should attend?
This half-day workshop is beneficial for any librarian, publisher or information professional interested in the impacts of self-publishing and independent publishing on library acquisitions. Though more impact has been felt thus far in the social sciences and humanities, this is a phenomenon affecting all areas of materials acquisitions will provide valuable insights for anyone working in this area.

What is SelfPub 2.0?
SP2 is about insuring that the continued democratization of publishing and content tools pushes the mission of the library into the future. We will be producing workshops, mini-conferences and learning materials centered on this mission.
