split screen of young woman with laptop and young man with laptop facing each otherimage © Mitchell Joyce and Kristin MansonThe Association of American University Presses (AAUP) surveyed its members and ARL libraries in 2012 to identify elements of successful collaborations. The survey included questions on operational and financial structures and resulted in descriptions of the variety of existing relationships between presses and libraries. Follow-up interviews with some respondents were conducted in 2013. Today AAUP released a report, Press and Library Collaboration Survey, that includes a number of broad conclusions and recommendations for successful collaboration. For an overview and to read the full report, see the AAUP news release, “Successful Press-Library Collaborations Rely on Complementary Skills, Resources, and Missions.”
