Library Press@UF Coordinator

Description

In 2016, the Libraries and the University of Florida Press began a new collaboration on the LibraryPress@UF, an imprint of the University of Florida Press. The LibraryPress@UF Coordinator (Coordinator) is a new position that operates within the George A. Smathers Libraries to ensure coordinated and consistent activities for the LibraryPress@UF. The Coordinator will collaboratively build and start-up the LibraryPress@UF as a new program, creating, developing, and directing the strategic planning process.

 

The Coordinator supports production and development needs for all LibraryPress@UF imprint works (e.g., new publications, republications, expanded editions, digital works, etc.) for design, layout, creation, coordination on metadata (e.g., library records, CIP, and publisher information), developing and maintaining design files and processes, and overall production needs. The LibraryPress@UF focuses on works that are born digital, with print-on-demand options integrated with sole source production, and with digital files hosted as Open Access through the Libraries. The Coordinator provides support to academic faculty collaborating with the Libraries on publishing efforts, and provides support for scholars regarding enhanced monographs in collaboration with the UF Press. Attends relevant conferences (e.g., Association of American University Presses, Library Publishing Forum) for sharing of UF activities and development of best practices.

 

The Coordinator plays a critical role for enhancing and expanding the existing relationship and activities by serving as a core contact with the UF Press, including for new opportunities in regards to online journals; enhanced monographs; shared events; and collaborative grants including the Open Book Program grant to re-enliven out of print books. 

 

The search will remain open until August 15, 2017. Applications will be reviewed as received. For a full description of the position and instructions on how to apply, please refer to the George A.
