In general, publishing of any scientific literature means publishing for the library community. A big portion of scientific journals, scientific monographs and even academic text books go to libraries. Therfore publishing companies like Elsevier Science, Wolters-Kluwer, Springer, John Wiley, Academic Press and others are the biggest and surely also the most important suppliers for libraries. Any scientific library spends an extremely high percentage of the acquisition budget on journals from these publishers because of the mostly extraordinary high prices.
