Kennedy and Berkery discuss the state of library-publisher relations, emphasizing common goals and shared challenges among research libraries and university presses. Kennedy notes university presses and libraries “share the same goal—access to scholarship—and together we can advance this through the relationships we have with local scholars and broader disciplines.” As Berkery says, “Simply put, research libraries and university presses support scholars and contribute to a healthy, shared scholarly ecosystem.”
