This is a pre-print of a chapter that originally appeared in The Expert Library: Staffing, Sustaining, and Advancing The Academic Library in The 21st Century, edited by Scott Walter and Karen Williams, 190-233. (Chicago, IL: Association of College and Research Libraries, 2011). "The Publisher in the Library" is a broad overview of how libraries staff publishing services, what duties those staff carry, and the skills, training, and educational backgrounds of those staff. It's based on interviews with a dozen librarians and publishing professionals. I'm very grateful that they were willing to speak with me to help write this, and I learned a lot from them. I conducted these interviews over two years ago so circumstances and opinions may have changed in the interim.
