As we move into our second phase here at Lever Press, we are delighted to announce that our new website is now live. You should find it easier to access information and updates, which aligns with our goal of greater transparency and communication. We are also excited to announce that our latest book, *[Elizabeth Bishop and the Literary Archive ](https://www.fulcrum.org/concern/monographs/2b88qd97w)*is live on Fulcrum. This project was born out of the poet’s archive at Vassar College and was edited by a scholar at Williams College. It is also our first title that includes numerous embedded images and will serve as an example for others who are hoping to bring the archive alive with the tools allotted to us from Fulcrum. We will publish a book every month from now until June, so stay on the lookout for new titles!

On the conference scene, I gave a Lever Press update with planning help from our new Oversight Committee Chair, Marta Brunner, at the Coalition for Networked Information in December. A few folks from Lever Press member libraries were at the panel, as well as others from the Association of University Presses world and beyond. It was well attended and, as the head of external affairs for the US National Archive tweeted, “6 interesting short updates in the 1:00 slot, but so far ALL the discussion has been about the Lever Press, Fulcrum, and questions for [@BBouloukos](https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2FBBouloukos&data=02%7C01%7Cmhassen%40bowdoin.edu%7C461576c81aef484cb12408d7a6714357%7C984e32e5f98a4600aa3227c3f948abe3%7C1%7C0%7C637160877710536353&sdata=mAMS8hAMN4q6b4fxNVVYHLanzatr4rBPjHkPvmCPVA0%3D&reserved=0).” In early January I participated in two panels at the American Historical Association annual meeting in New York, one on open access monograph publishing and another on university press publishing. Both were well attended and I fielded many questions about the Lever Press model.
