Online Doc ALCTS Publisher/Vendor/Library Relations (PVLR) Interest Group seeks new Co-Chair

by Lee Sochay on Thu, Jun 22, 2017 at 12:26 pm

The ALCTS Publisher-Vendor-Library Relations IG (PVLR) is looking for one (1) new co-chair for 2017-2019 to serve alongside two new co-chairs, Elizabeth Wallace from the University of Alberta Libraries and Carolyn Morris from Baker & Taylor. Terms begin after the 2017 ALA Annual Conference and co-chairs are expected to attend both ALA Annual and Midwinter conferences. The PVLR is a long-standing interest group with roots in fostering communication and discussing issues of mutual interest.

Charge: PVLR will create formal and informal settings for the discussion of issues and trends of interest to publishers, vendors, librarians, and others concerned with the business aspects of library collections and technical services, and will highlight best practices among our constituent groups.

With work divided among three (3) Co-Chairs, the demands on time are quite manageable and the discussions are worthwhile to all constituent groups.

Co-Chairs need to be or become an ALCTS member and have an active interest in developing programs and discussions to benefit the relations of publishers, vendors, and libraries.

Please respond with your interest to:

Suzanne Kemperman (Co-Chair, July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2017)

(kempers@oclc.org)

Lee Sochay (Co-Chair, July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2017)

The ALCTS Publisher/Vendor/Library Relations (PVLR) Interest Group invites you for a discussion on Streaming Videos - Opportunities and Challenges in Libraries.

About the topic:

The ALCTS Publisher/Vendor/Library Relations (PVLR) Interest Group invites you for a discussion on Streaming Videos - Opportunities and Challenges in Libraries.

About the topic:

Today, people increasingly demand access to content where and when they want it. Streaming video and video-on-demand has become a very popular format for entertainment and informational purposes. There are many new vendors in this growing market place. Libraries are experiencing an increasing number of requests for these types of resources. At the same time, there are many challenges that make acquiring these resources unmanageable, restrictive or impossible for libraries. Among these challenges are the understanding and management of different business models such as PDA, DDA, or subscription-based services and the fact that licensing requirements may be either non-existent or not friendly to library services. In addition, purchasing requirements from a diverse pool of vendors cause inefficiency in acquisitions workflows. There are varying quality of metadata in MARC records for video materials and hurdles in the management of authentication and the accessibility, including compliance with usability and accessibility standards for users with physical disabilities.  

 This session will bring librarians and industry professionals together for a discussion of ideas and suggestions for best practices and to improve standardization, compliance and efficiency within the marketplace so the needs of library users can be met.

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.
