NISO/BISG 9th Annual Forum: The Changing Standards Landscape Access or Ownership: Evolving Business Models and Your Institution Exhibitor session, Program Moscone Convention Center
3012 (W)
Description :

Standards are critically important elements that can make any business process more efficient. The traditional print subscription services model, the process of handling standing book orders by libraries, and even the process of buying, selling, and consuming e-books through a variety of platforms all require standardized business processes to efficiently get content from publishers through vendors to libraries and ultimately to patrons.

As our community adapts to changing paradigms regarding service and ownership models specific to digital publishing, both the library and publishing communities need to consider the implications of these changes. Print content distribution was centered on a sales model, where the transfer of ownership of a physical object was a core element of the transaction; this is often not the case with digital assets. Generally, content is licensed and access is limited; by rights, by term, or by community served. The implications of this shift are quite broad both for content providers as well as libraries. What are the business practices, roles and responsibilities, on both sides of the new digital exchange that all parties need to be aware of and incorporate to ensure efficient information exchange?

The model included in person overview training, group collection analysis, online sessions on targeted subjects and one on one assistance in preparing grant proposals.
