The inclusive e-book ecosystem

The e-book is fairly new. The stakeholders are still seeking better and more sustainable business models and ways to collaborate. Disruptive technology will keep changing the pre-conditions for publishing.

If we look at it as a maturing process, it is likely that the whole eco system of digital books will be different ten years from now. In shaping processes and structures that enable the vision of “Born Digital Born Accessible” the stakeholders need to find their unique roles.

Ten years from now - what will be the roles of the specialist provider? the mainstream library? the national archives? and last but not least - the bookshop or mainstream retail provider?

Who is it for?

This track targets an audience with a general interest in inclusion, digital publishing and e-books in libraries. We will hear visionary ideas and insight in high level aspects such as globalisation, governance, international standards and legislation.  The track will also give you concrete and good examples of inclusive e-book publishing from both private and public sector and from different parts of the planet.
