Adam Chesler's Slides          Anne McKee's Slides          Kim Steinle's Slides

Unlike scholarly journals, eBooks have a more unpredictable audience and revenue. They also come in a greater variety of sizes and flavors. A librarian (Anne McKee, GWLA) will set the stage and 3 publishers of different sizes and shapes (new pub – Business Expert Press, STM pub – Springer, University Press – Duke) will describe what makes it’s easy and what makes it hard to sell to academic libraries.
