Abstract: The Library Association of Ireland (LAI) Library Publishing Group was established in 2019 by a group of librarians involved in library publishing and others who wished to learn more. The aims of the LAI Library Publishing Group are: • To raise awareness of the Library Publishing movement in Ireland • To disseminate information on the latest developments within the Library publishing sector nationally and internationally • To mentor new library publishers and to showcase library publishing initiatives and successes in Ireland • To forge links between open access and institutional publishing presses and libraries • To liaise with relevant agencies such as the Library Publishing Coalition, the IFLA Library Publishing Special Interest Group, PKP and other key organisations. • To promote and teach the Library Publishing Curriculum to Group members and across the library sector The LAI Library Publishing Group has held a number of webinars to share knowledge and practice. The Group has also developed strategic affiliations with the Library Publishing Coalition and the IFLA Library Publishing Special Interest Group. It contributed to the National Open Research Forum (NORF) National Open Research Landscape Report, and it recently endorsed the National Action Plan for Open Research. The Committee comprises representatives from twelve academic institutions.
