If you had top executives from 4 academic eBook aggregators in the same room, what would you ask them? Seriously, I need to know. One of the Lively Lunch sessions at the XXX Annual Charleston Conference is an open forum with academic eBook aggregators from ebrary, EBL, Ingram, and NetLibrary. I’m looking for suggestions on questions to ask these individuals. I’m moderating and want to make this as informative and interesting as I can!
When: Friday, November 5th
Session description: In this Town Hall setting, executives from the major academic ebook aggregators will be put on the spot and asked a variety of questions about the purchasing, licensing, and access of ebooks. Exclusive licenses, business models, pricing points, interface development, and the implementation of ebook readers are just some of the topics that will be presented to the panel. Audience members can take part in the program as well, by asking pointed questions and sharing the challenges of ebook purchasing and access with the executives.
