Some library publishing operations make use of a Publications Advisory Board to oversee the process, provide insight and input, and to approve publication proposals submitted to the program. We will share different perspectives on Advisory Boards and their roles in library publishing programs, culminating in a shared document for the use of library publishing programs that have, or are considering the creation of, a Publications Advisory Board. Topics discussed will include the general mission and activities of the Board, the composition of a Board, how to facilitate engagement with Board members, and the benefits and drawbacks of having a Publications Advisory Board. Audience input will be gathered regarding the document, and particularly sought from audience members who have been considering implementing a Publications Advisory Board, or who have decided not to pursue a Board.
