6 Scholarly communication A 2010 survey of member institutions of ARL, the Oberlin Group and the University Libraries Group found that approximately half of the respondents had or were developing library publishing services. Three quarters published journals, while half published monographs and/or conference proceedings. The libraries commonly provided digital repository services, author copyright advice, digitization services, and management of research datasets, as well as metadata creation, cataloging, and digital preservation. Academic libraries were less likely to provide traditional publishing services – peer review management, editing, typesetting, design and marketing – that faculty authors at a recent THATCamp publishing forum identified as important. –2012 top ten trends in academic libraries: a review of the trends and issues affecting academic libraries in higher education. 6
