Interview with Britannica’s Rick Lumsden about ebook platform and apps

Last Saturday at the ALA Conference I met with Rick Lumsden, Executive Director for Institutional Sales and Marketing for Britannica.  We discussed Britannica’s new ebook platform and their mobile apps.  More information about Britannica’s ebooks and previews of the books can be found at ebooks.eb.com.

Rick’s interview and over 40 others are available on the NSR interviews page.

Forthcoming audio interviews for NSR – OverDrive, Britannica, ebrary

ALA is a great time to connect with librarians and publishers for audio interviews.  Today I met with Dan Stasiewski at OverDrive to discuss the new OverDrive WIN platform features and Rick Lumsden from Encyclopaedia Britannica to discuss the new Britannica eBook platform.  Tomorrow I’ll be with Matt Barnes of ebrary to discuss the new PDA business model and a recent survey ebrary conducted on downloadable ebooks.  I hope to get these posted early next week. Stay tuned.
