Title: Defining a Sustainable E-book Model: Questions and Answers about Digital Monographs

Time: Monday, January 23, 8:30am-10:00am

Location: GWCC B215

 

ABOUT THE TOPIC

Although national statistics which track e-books trends suggests that sales are decreasing, the development of new e-book business models appears to be on the rise. Libraries are struggling to manage a variety of e-book platforms from a vast array of publishers. Purchase options include individual monograph selection, subscription models, usage driven purchases, and e-book collections which have gotten bigger and bigger. Other issues include multiple platforms and access. While publishers and vendors pursue ways to maximize revenue, there has been push back from libraries, which want to get content on an “as needed” basis. E-books are not as easy to manage, it can be hard for a library to acquire content, and e-book models keeps evolving.

 

The January 2017 PLVR panel discussion will provide a forum for the discussion about key trends for e-books in libraries. We will address questions about how publishers, vendors and libraries can negotiate issues surrounding business models, electronic property rights, print and download limits. How can publishers assure availability and access in the future? What gives everybody the best return on investment? We will also discuss accessibility options: what are the requirements for accessibility how should it be built into an e-book platform? What is its effect on libraries?

This session will bring together librarians, publishing professionals and library services representatives to brainstorm future directions and lead a discussion about finding solutions to these challenges.

The Future of Publishing – Insights from Librarians, Publishers and Vendors

Monday, June 27 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM Orange County Convention Center, Room W105A

The Future of Publishing – Insights from Librarians, Publishers and Vendors

Monday, June 27 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM Orange County Convention Center, Room W105A

Description:
As we look at the future of publishing - and its impact on authors, publishers, libraries, book stores and vendors - there are a large number of changes in the acquisition and distribution of content to explore. New trends include the continued shift between print and eBooks, their business and pricing models and its impact on bookstores and libraries; and the changing environment for authors, especially those who self-publish. Challenges include access to alternative content, in both e- and print formats, and a changing environment which emphasizes self-publishing and other alternative publishing methods. Another trend is the increase in eBook prices, which means that print sales are also higher and eBook sales are somewhat stagnant – with noted differences in trade and academic publishing. Libraries are tasked with reflecting the culture of their communities and making all of this content available, accessible, and kept for future generations. When fulfilling a library’s mission, librarians face budgetary constraints, the dominance of large publishers and distributors who aim to serve a broader reader base, and the lack of knowledge that alternative and self-published materials exist.

This session will bring together library professionals, publishing and self-publishing service representatives to brainstorm future trends and lead a discussion about finding solutions to these challenges.

DESCRIPTION

ROOM CLARIFICATION

The Event is located in Boston Convention Center Room 105

DESCRIPTION

The consolidation in the publishing and vendor industry has continued at an accelerated pace. The library market has realized the mergers and acquisitions of several providers of content and services in recent years. It seems the trend is for more mergers and acquisitions of this type to continue to take place as companies seek to strengthen market positions and profitability. Mergers and acquisitions affect all stakeholders in the industry, from authors to independent and commercial publishing houses, from vendors to libraries. The effects of these mergers and acquisitions can be felt industry wide from changing business relationships and models to the changing of the very content and services these companies provide, and it may create the need to make changes in client communications and company workflow. Such mergers can enhance capabilities and address customer needs; they allow an organization to assume the complimentary capabilities, skills and talents of the merged organizations while investing in worthwhile entities and developing them while continue to provide service. This all effects the way libraries provide access to the resources their communities need. This session presents the impacts of mergers and acquisitions from the different stakeholders and how we might work together in reducing the impact on the eventual end users of our content and services. Our speakers will identify industry trends and develop guidelines or best practices for dealing with mergers on all sides. Aspects include the impact of changing relationships, technical services and data workflows.
