My presentation -- "A Foray into Digital Library Publishing: The British Virginia Project at VCU" -- will address the successful efforts to create a digital publishing project at Virginia Commonwealth University Libraries (https://digarchive.library.vcu.edu/handle/10156/3585). This project involved close collaboration between librarians and faculty members in the departments of English and History at VCU, with the project led by Dr. Joshua Eckhardt (English). As of April 25, the project has published its first title: an online edited edition of a sermon preached to the colonizing Virginia Company by William Symonds. A number of details required careful planning for this project to succeed, and I will discuss the library outreach and IT involvement that will show our example and how it may prove beneficial for other libraries considering digital publishing with faculty.
