Please join us at Lewis & Clark College on Friday, Sept. 16 for the 2016
Johannah Sherrer Memorial Lecture in Library Service.  Bryn Geffert,
Librarian of the College at Amherst College, will present:

"An Imperfect Effort to Build the Perfect Academic Press"

Frustrated with the academy's growing inability to disseminate literature
to those who need it, worried about the lack of outlets for evaluating and
certifying innovative digital scholarship, and itching to bring the voices
of liberal arts colleges to an industry dominated by research institutions,
41 liberal arts colleges have banded together to form the Lever Press.
Working with the Amherst College Press and the University of Michigan
Press, this new initiative has committed to producing sixty works over the
course of five years--all rigorously peer-reviewed and edited, and all
disseminated free of charge under Creative Commons licenses. How we arrived
at this point, where we've succeeded, where we've failed, and where we hope
to end up.

The lecture will be held at 3pm at Diane Gregg Pavilion.  A reception will
follow the event.
