Announcing Fulcrum Integration Plans

The Editoria Community is very pleased to welcome Michigan Publishing into our circle of forward-thinking publishers architecting the future of books production workflow together.

Michigan Publishing, a division of the University of Michigan Library, is the hub of scholarly publishing for the University of Michigan Press and Maize imprints. Michigan Publishing also develops Fulcrum, the community-based, open source platform which supports publishers like Lever Press and aggregations such as the ACLS Humanities Ebook Collection.

“Together, Editoria and Fulcrum provide an open source, end-to-end solution for digital first monograph publishing,” says Charles Watkinson, Associate University Librarian for Michigan Publishing. “This is a revolutionary offering for library-based publishers committed to implementing an academy-owned tool chain.”

“I’m thrilled to welcome Michigan Publishing and Fulcrum to the community,” says Editoria Community Manager Alison O’Connell. “Editoria’s collaborative editing and automated typesetting pushing to Fulcrum for presentation and preservation are a win-win for our organizations as well as for hundreds of university presses and library publishers.”

Michigan Publishing will be on hand at the Editoria Community meeting October 18th in San Francisco.
