Abstract

This paper describes the UCL model (University College London) for 21st-century university publishing. This is centred in the University Library, not just as the curator and indexer of Knowledge, but as the producer of Knowledge. The paper sets the establishment of UCL Press in the context of Open Access developments in the UK and examines the traditional role of the Library in the research process. It posits a role for the University Library as publisher in at least three areas: research monographs, research journals and e-textbooks. The characteristics of monograph and e-textbook publishing are then examined in the context of UCL Press’s vision and aspirations. The paper concludes that the future for 21st-century research-intensive universities is to embrace open access publishing ventures with a new role for the University Library.
