Faculty approach the Copyright and Scholarly Communications Office (CSCO) to discuss the creation of scholarly monographs on various topics through the Libraries ePublishing service. Each project includes editorial and publication support from the CSCO staff, including the procurement of a book designer. A faculty member who is interested in utilizing ePublishing service is responsible for bringing a well-edited book and the funds for hiring a professional book designer for the project.
