No More Business as Usual: Is E-commerce Changing our Business Models?
Sunday, June 16th, 1:30-5:30PM
Georgia World Congress Center, Room B 401-402.
Sponsor: AAP/ALCTS Joint Committee
Co-sponsor: ALCTS Commercial Technical Services Committee
Current Business Models are changing as libraries, publishers, and
vendors enter the world of e-commerce. The products and services
provided by our business partners are valued by libraries but we want to
be able to choose those we can afford that best fit our needs, not just
those which suppliers have included in their current marketing plans.
Increased purchases through consortia and negotiated licenses cause
libraries to do more business directly with suppliers. What effect does
this have on vendors? What effect is that new relationship having on
publishers and vendors? Within the context of a business model that is
changing through electronic innovation how do we make decisions about
what products and services we want to provide our customers, what
products and services publishers should provide to libraries, and what
does all of this do to the traditional relationships of publishers,
vendors and libraries?
