Accommodate new sales models
The need to handle:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Electronic sales items
Internet based delivery
Flexible combinations
New sales models by trial
Shorter time to market
Specific “reading” tools
The flexibility to meet change
16
New Sales Models - eBook, Print & eBook, POD
17
New Sales Models - buying sections
18
New Sales Models - PDA Patron Driven Acquisition
PDA is now practical largely
due to the spread of the eBook
-
Enormous savings for libraries
Aims and Scope
40% percent of books purchased in traditional
ways never circulate And 40% circulate fewer than
three times.
By contrast, PDA allows a library to borrow or buy
books only when a patron needs them.
Increased revenues for publishers

•
Walter De Gruyter by 20%
Ithaka/Jstor forecast 15% growth
•
•
Library makes automatic buying decision
based on usage!
•
The library imports bibliographic records into
its catalogue at no cost.
When a patron finds a patron-driven record in
the course of research, a short-term loan can
allow him to borrow the book
The transaction charge to the library will be a
small percentage of the list price.
Typically, a library will automatically buy a
book on a third or fourth use.

And technology wise...
• Become more scaleable,
flexible, customizable
• Run on web and all mobile
devices
• Future proof technology

Conclusion.
Content is now consumed differently, and the traditional publishing
business models have changed. This will only accelerate with the
new generation of digital products
Organisations who fail to implement new business models, processes
and the infrastructure needed to support this transition will struggle to
survive.
