In April 2012, Purdue University Press and Purdue Libraries’ Scholarly Publishing Division moved under a new umbrella, that of the Publishing Division of Purdue Libraries. The organizational change leverages the combined efforts of staff working at the Press and on the Purdue e-Pubs repository so that they can better serve the scholarly communication needs of the University. The synergies achieved allow a much greater range of publishing services to be offered, across a continuum from formal, peer-reviewed books and journals produced under the “Purdue University Press” imprint to informal conference proceedings, technical reports, white papers, and other “literature” produced with the assistance of Purdue Scholarly Publishing Services.
A publishing division website has been launched at lib.purdue.edu/publishing to provide an access point for these services for faculty, staff, and students at the University. A combined 2013 catalog of the products of both the Press and Scholarly Publishing Services is also now available.
