        Subject: Help advance library publishing infrastructure with your ideas! A quick survey.

From CDL/Educopia/Stratos/LYRASIS/COAR/Longleaf:

We know these are complicated times, and you are enduring challenges in multiple
areas.  Many of us are adjusting to new working environments (and office-
mates!), and our tools, workflows, and communication methods are being stretched
and tested under new constraints.

The NGLP project has funding from Arcadia (https://www.arcadiafund.org.uk/) to
invest in existing, emerging, and new infrastructure for library publishing in
2020-21, and we'd like your thoughts on how and where to spend those funds.
This is your chance to help shape the future of library and other nonprofit

We seek your perspectives, needs, and opinions on how our Next Generation
Library Publishing (https://educopia.org/next-generation-library-publishing/)
(NGLP) team could help to improve your experience with publishing workflows and

Tell us your ideas on how to improve scholarly publishing infrastructure. These
might include new tools, enhancements to existing tools, bridges between tools,
hosted solutions, or even work on shared practices and standards. We are also
interested in learning about other projects or initiatives that relate to this

We are eager for all your ideas, from single-sentence wishes to brief proposals
for fully formulated plans. It may be something that you or your organization
wants to work on, or something that you wish others would do to make your life
easier. No suggestion is too big or too small!

Please share your ideas by completing this short survey
(http://bit.ly/NGLP_Request_for_Ideas) by or before 4/24/2020. We hope that you
will participate and share this request widely among your colleagues. The
results will help in identification of development priorities for the project. A
summary will be shared in our reports. If you have questions or comments, please
email us at NGLP@educopia.org <>
