As liberal arts institutions search for sustainable strategies for enhancing learning in the digital age, individual scholars are also looking for new modes of communication amid rapid changes in the publishing industry, academic libraries, and intellectual practice. Our panel bridges these conversations by featuring three rich examples of multi-authored, open-access publications: a journal on archival theory and practice (http://ArchiveJournal.net), a civil rights monograph (http://OnTheLine.trincoll.edu), and an open peer-reviewed edited volume, (http://WritingHistory.trincoll.edu). All share a common characteristic: the ideas emerged from individuals but came to life through inter-institutional collaborations. We will demonstrate working models and facilitate a broad discussion of innovations and implications for partnerships by liberal arts colleges, since these publications illustrate the type of scholarly production that would be difficult to support solely at one small institution.
