The MIT Press has reported into the MIT Libraries for decades, but collaboration between the two was rare and usually one-off. This changed in 2015, when both the Libraries and Press hired directors who explicitly wanted to experiment with open access models and work with each other. This leadership and cultural shift has laid the groundwork for collaborations small and large between staff at the Press and Libraries, from joining each other’s teams to supporting open access journal flips to strategizing about the future of OA and scholarly publishing at MIT and beyond. In this session, Nick Lindsay from the MIT Press and Katharine Dunn from the MIT Libraries share details of how the Press/Libraries collaboration has evolved over the last several years and what future plans are; and they suggest ideas for how other libraries and university presses can join forces and support each other in the ever-changing publishing landscape.
