So, You Want to Get Out of Print: Strategies and Perspectives from Publishers and Librarians
Tuesday, April 19, 2011, 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. EDT
The Society for Scholarly Publishing presents a compelling webinar that will explore the implications of moving away from a print-focused business to an online-only publishing business model. From the comfort of your office, you can gain valuable information from experienced publishers and librarians who have successfully implemented the online-only workflow.
This webinar will draw on the experiences of institutions that have adopted e-focused policies and procedures, and will provide an outline of the strategy for getting out of print and into an electronic-based business.
It is undeniable that publishers must operate in a dual print and electronic world; however, many of the policies and procedures being utilized continue to center on the processing of print material. Although not all types of content can be online, the recent trend in e-only is growing significantly. The presenters will discuss the challenges that can arise in the movement to e-only such as
ensuring adequate staffing, provision of necessary training, and creation of a robust technological infrastructure.
Consider attending if you want to learn more about: Implications for getting out of print; Logistics of revamping existing workflows; Technological infrastructure needed to support e-only
