Abstract: During the last years, the dramatic changes in electronic publishing landscape have created new roles and changed the traditional ones. Libraries nowadays have capitalized their experience and knowledge in information technology and electronic publishing to undertake such activities, while they spearhead the campaign for Open Access spreading within academic communities. The Library & Information Center (LIC) of the University of Patras (UoP), Greece, has been playing an active role in promoting Open Access in Greece. Since 2007, LIC has been experimenting with OA publishing practices and tools within the framework of various R&D projects. Two out of the major results of these efforts are: - the “Pasithee” e-publishing platform - the “Dexamene” digital archive for Greek scholarly journals Both platforms are based on OJS-Open Journal Systems e-publishing software. The two installations are appropriately modified to meet LIC’s publishing and archiving requirements respectively. Currently two journals are being hosted in each platform, all four belonging in the Humanities, while LIC is in negotiations with more publishers and editorial teams to host their journals in LIC’s services accordingly. In this presentation we focus on the: - technical and managerial key issues of the development and operation phases, - services and procedures, - adopted business model, - technological, procedural and legal issues and problems that were raised from working together with publishers, editors and authors, and - future plans for improving and upgrading our e-publishing services in an integrated institutional platform to cover all kinds of publications and data types (monographs, conference proceedings, teaching material, bulletins, magazines etc.) The paper concludes with a succinct presentation of the Directory of Greek Digital Resources, a pilot infrastructure developed by LIC, which indexes and presents digital publishing initiatives in Greece and aims to become a formal registry for Greek scientific resources in digital format.
