This webinar will draw on the experiences of institutions that have adopted e-focused policies and procedures, and will provide an outline of the strategy for getting out of print and into an electronic-based business.
It is undeniable that publishers must operate in a dual print and electronic world; however, many of the policies and procedures being utilized continue to center on the processing of print material. Although not all types of content can be online, the recent trend in e-only is growing significantly. The presenters will discuss the challenges that can arise in the movement to e-only such asensuring adequate staffing, provision of necessary training, and creation of a robust technological infrastructure.
