  • My preference is e-ink, but screens if necessary. Feel bad printing.
  • TARGET: Finish at 10:25Jeff Jarvis – CUNY, TWIGAround 1439Intro to parenthesis idea here: Prof. L.O. Sauerberg, U of Southern DenmarkThe period during which the distribution of text through time & space was dominated by print – paper & booksBefore: oral tradition & scribesDuring: Printing press opened it, 500 years of dominance. Books are considered finishsed and whole. After: ? Transitioning now, challenged by digital cultureDoes ‘book’ have a meaning?Sauerberg says we’re at the dawn of a shift just as big as the printing pressA “second orality based on a return of fluidity in communication”Assumption that a work will be complete, finished, and not merely fragments.

  • TARGET: Finish at 10:35Not talking about generalconsumer perspective – only scoped to librariesThey just want it to work
  • OK, one thing about general consumershttp://www.statista.com/statistics/201401/e-reader-use-in-the-united-states/Rates doubled over 2011 holiday seasonReality is that most consumers have some kind of e-reader (PC etc).
  • Point out discord around spelling of ‘ebook’http://libraries.pewinternet.org/2012/06/22/libraries-patrons-and-e-books/Kindle loans only started in sept. 201112% is really 2% of all Americans 16 & older.
  • Point out discord around spelling of ‘ebook’http://libraries.pewinternet.org/2012/06/22/libraries-patrons-and-e-books/Kindle loans only started in sept.2011Device loans work for now, but what happens when everyone owns a device already?
  • When asked what library ebooks should be
  • What about right of first sale?They like buying stuff, lending stuff, etc.Mention lendle.mePricing issues
  • Inflexible checkout times – 1000 pages in 2 weeks? What about 4000 pages?
  • TARGET: Finish at 10:35Inheritance?What happens when you die?Non-transferable license.DRM-free isn’t a big dealShare password – but can’t subdivide & merge. Accessvs true ownershipSide reminder: Music hit all these issues first. Publishers learned lessons, can we? How many of you lend MP3s in a meaningful way?
  • TARGET: Finish at 10:45Public Library perspective
  • Verbal approval onlyDRM + DMCA = criminal to circumvent. License-violators at best.Exception (2010): can circumvent when read-aloud is disabled
  • B&N efforts at device lending – lose 6 device advantageAudiobooks too
  • Overdrive: 35 million digital titles were checked out of libraries in 2011, with 17 million holds on e-books that people were waiting for. (from Pew study)Popular fictionMoving between platforms? Technicality only: http://www.startribune.com/154308815.html?refer=yNeed written permission from each publisher3M is similar, but smaller – uproar spreads more slowly
  • Plus other smaller ones, but these are the ‘big 6’I don’t have Overdrive at work, but as a patron
  • 3M only for pilot (NYPL only) means No Kindle useKilled entirely in February, now back to pilot program in NYC?Stopped sales in Feb. (residency concerns re: NYPL)Began in AugustLeftover titles allowed, but no direct kindle lending
  • Limit began in 2011
  • Only publisher that will sell entire list of titlesGOT: we pay more for a book very hard to read in the allowed manner
  • Announced 9/13 (220%), corrected 9/17roughly 3,500 titles with release dates of April 2010 and earlierPricing chart here: http://blogs.publishersweekly.com/blogs/PWxyz/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/DCL-report-Sheet1.pdfWhat about Pottermore?
  • Overdrive is our ally, but a profit-driven one
  • Colorado
  • Spread the word?
  • Again – right of first sale this affects libraries’ funding too
  • Surprised they allow itKindle loans completed via Amazon’s site – must log in. Who knows what they’re gathering?
  • Americanlibrariesmagazine.org/sites/default/files/EbookBusinessModelsPublicLibs_ALA.pdfIntegration = metadata for catalog (MARC)“…libraries should give more emphasis to the use of public domain and open license ebooks”Possible new model: subscription-based
  • $40 device – MR3020
  • Tend to live more in the cloudDifferent usage patterns – parts, not the whole. Few would buy otherwise.Single vs multiuserOften subscription-basedMany smaller publishers/providers tooBlurry lines of what is a book. Synthesis Lectures SeriesILL?
  • Hathi: “by libraries for libraries”. Intent to preserve long term. 8.7 million volumes in June ‘11. Repository of items scanned via Google & other initiativesA bit confusing to access.OL: “one web page for every book ever published”. IA, Brewster Kahle. 20m books, 1m digitized. Another 200k in ‘lending library’ (need to contribute)GB: lawsuit by Authors’ Guild, 2005
  • ~700 surveys, focus groups, interviews
  • ~700 surveys, focus groups, interviews
  • ~700 surveys, focus groups, interviewsSubstantial subset (over 1/3) still print much of their e-readings$40 gone in days
  • Synthesis Lectures Series – experimenting with delivery methods outside the parenthesis. (Morgan & Claypool) ~100 pages
  • TARGET: Finish at 10:45But they use them anyway!
  • TARGET: Finish at 10:55Other side of the table(largely public-focused here)
  • Penguin’s lack of OTA optionForce users to come into library?
  • Owned by MacmillanMy experience buying Among Others.Great, but doesn’t apply to librariesEnables 3rd party booksellers – dragonmount.com
  • http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2012/sep/07/ebook-price-fixing-judge-settlementWholesale model vs Agency modelWholesale: MSRP & wholesale price provided, Amazon often undercut wholesale.Agency: Price is dictated, seller gets 30% cut. Came about in 2010. Publishers willing to take loss to fight Amazon ‘devaluing’Apple included clause that publishers couldn’t give anyone else a lower price (even wholesale). Apple doesn’t have to compete, still gets 30%Result of agency: retailers lose ability to compete on pricehttp://www.macstories.net/stories/understanding-the-agency-model-and-the-dojs-allegations-against-apple-and-those-publishers/S&S, Hachette, HC settled immediately in April. $69m to compensate readers who bought under agency. Agency model dead.Protested by many, including B&N. Seen as favorable to Amazon’s ‘predatory’ practices.“Do consumers pay more now to enrich publishers, or pay less to boost Amazon's future profits.”

  • 10:55-11:05
  • TARGET: Finish at 11:20Too many to fully count, but we’ll hit the major onesE-ink vs LCD
  • G1: 2007WhispersyncBase: $69Too fractured?.mobi format, plus proprietary options
  • Bezos’ response in 2010: “Oh, you noticed that”. Smiled.Time has passed.
  • G1: 2009Base $99, but includes extra features – touchscreen, backlightepub
  • $130, not competitiveG1: 2006epub
  • 800lb gorillaLCD vs e-ink-Battery-Sun-LightiTunes store restrictions – no selling
  • TARGET: Finish at 11:20The ultimate ubiquitous device
  • TARGET: Finish at 11:50Tend to live more in the cloudDifferent usage patterns – parts, not the wholeSingle vs multiuser
  • Out of copyright, completely free-international issue – Gone With the Wind AustraliaPre-19231971 – US Constitution, on ARPANETSearch for Dumas, file format options. Bibrec too!Nice mobile site too
  • Kindle cloud readerWhispersync-Video & audiobooks tooMetadata for audio!
  • Mention 3M hereLC: 23450005424510Not a lot of extra features
  • Freevs bookstoreSearch gone with the windLimit to free googleebooksSearch for Dumas, About this Book, download optionshttp://books.google.com/ngrams ‘internet’, look at old resultsMagazine access – great for ads (microfilm before)
  • Example: http://search.lib.unc.edu/search?R=UNCb6057977 Package vs. individual purchase (multi/single)Different download options – 60 page limit (crappy pdf) vs entire book (inflexible model)Need separate account to do much
  • Not to pick on ebrary. Many are like this.
  • Does provide MARCFriction – individual page PDFsOdd page aspect ratios
  • Issues with access model
  • Terrible reading UICan download some10 pages per PDF download – more frictionLive demo a For Dummies ebook
  • Institutional model of individual subscription: http://www.safaribooksonline.com/We don’t quite get the device advantagesBut: flexibility!Technical catalogAccessible! HTML view
  • TARGET: Finish at 11:20Weird UI, but easy PDF downloadObjective C for Absolute BeginnersNo-fuss PDF!
  • End at Noon! You made it!Are we really heading there? Maybe not anytime soon? Do theoretical capabilities match with reality?Publisher & platforms struggle to extend the parenthesis by fighting against inherent nature of digital textBut people still want it.What’s next? Something we’ve never expected.
  • DMCA issues
  • Efforts to shut it down – Amazon’s supposed API violations, Lendink mob DMCA shutdownLendle.me
  • AldikoStanza – bought by AmazonBooki.sh – bought by Overdrive

    • 43. AUTHORS And recorded music — in the sense of what it was when The Beatles arrived — was probably really gone with the advent of cassette tape . Because that was all of what it took to break the monopoly of production, of manufacture. There was never any real way to copy a vinyl record except to make another record, or make a copy on a reel - to-reel machine. It just wasn‘t something you could carry around. But as soon as that cassette tape was there, the monopoly was gone and the things started falling apart … I‘ve yet to come to a ver y clear opinion myself on how that‘s going to play out with printed books, but definitely, something is happening.William Gibson, interview with Wired:http://www.wired.com/underwire/2012/09/william-gibson-part-3-punk-memes/all/
