The LibraryPress@UF Editorial Collective is designed to serve as a vehicle for insight and guidance on new publications and ongoing program development.
The Collective is charged with two main tasks:
- Foster proposal development of new books built from the Libraries’ collections, utilizing the uniqueness of these collections coupled with opportunities supported through the UF Digital Collections for digital and public scholarship
- Develop and refine LibraryPress@UF operations and processes
The Editorial Collective serves in an advisory capacity, reporting to the Dean. The group meets two to three times a year, and provides insight to support engagement with constituents and interested communities (e.g., the Library Leadership Board). Representatives serve for two year terms.
