Instructors in the Information Sciences have the need to publish a variety of formal and informal content for educational purposes. For first time authors this is a daunting task and likely why they seek help from professional publishers. In this session the presenter intends to show why self-publishing and publishing on demand are very reasonable alternatives with a myriad of advantages not associated with a professional publisher. After participating in this session, the learner should be better able to: select several publish-on-demand publishers, compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing, compare and contrast the differences between print and e-book publishing, discuss the lessons learned from self-publishing, and outline the steps in self-publishing.
