Unbound : Publishing that works for everybody.
https://unbound.com/
We started Unbound with a simple mission: make publishing work. For everybody.
We believe that everyone should be given the chance to seize their own success, and that great ideas shouldn’t fall between the cracks because they don’t fit the mould.
And that’s what we’ve built – a better way of doing things.
A community, platform and a publishing model that shift the balance of power to you, people and communities that champion underserved ideas and voices.
Unbound is a global community built around creativity and ideas.
Over 140,549 people from every corner of the globe have supported an Unbound project and helped make that idea a reality. To date, we’ve published 299 books that only exist thanks to the Unbound community.

If you like what you read, you can pledge your support to help make the book happen. Everyone who supports an author before they reach 100% of the funding target gets their name printed in every edition of that book.
All levels include a digital version and immediate access to the author's shed while they write the book, and supporters of projects that don't reach their target receive a full refund.

Many librarian authors find that depositing work in online open-access (OA) LIS archives complements writing for LIS journals.
While a number of academic institutions offer space for faculty to self-archive their work (and some even require it), librarian authors should also consider self-archiving their articles, presentations, and other work in a subject-specific cross-institutional archive.
These broader services offer a number of advantages, and strong archives also help increase the visibility and accessibility of the library literature -- a plus for the profession as a whole.
