CAMEX Recap: One-Stop Publishing to College Communities

Lulu was at the Campus Market Expo (CAMEX) March 2-6th this week and boy did we have a great time. It was our first year at the event and since we were partnered with the National Association of College Stores (NACS), the guys responsible for CAMEX, attendees were eager to see what we offered. We did not disappoint.

Lulu got to show off our fancy new beta platform for college stores. What the heck does that mean? Well, we’re providing stores with the tools they need to become their own publishing hubs. This is great for everyone including faculty and staff, students, and the stores themselves. The platform puts the power back in the hands of the community. Educators can create customized course materials and textbooks at prices they set.

Students get more up-to-date and affordable content, and can publish works of their own. Stores get to diversify their revenue, take advantage of Lulu’s distribution partners, and look like the good guys they are to their customers—all while Lulu does all the heavy lifting on the back-end. Cool, huh?  So far, the pilot program has sign-ups from Montezuma Publishing at San Diego State University, Jayhawk Ink at the University of Kansas, and Odin Ink at Portland State University.

  1. I love the Lulu Fan!!! I think you should invite him to all your events. You should add the tweet button to his picture 🙂 He is sooo Cool!
    I think the own publishing hub is a great idea, the fact that it is extended to students and doctorates to publish their works or thesis that unfortunately do not make it to Journals. At least their research can become public and get some form of recognition or interest.
