Digital Publishing Service Providers Help Clients Discover Additional Monetization Opportunities
by Rebecca Walden
For publishers chasing the growing cadre of mobile-device-toting, app-happy consumers, digital publishing service providers offer a tempting partnership. While the service providers are creating affordable, engaging storefronts with a level of reader interactivity not possible in traditional print format, these companies are also asserting their value to a growing list of publisher partners through the delivery of real-time, detailed usage data. In turn, this allows publishers to examine targeted advertising opportunities and additional revenue streams with a previously unprecedented level of precision. Hallmark Data Systems, an EBSCO company, recently announced the launch of Mozaic, its publishing service that includes digital magazine production, hosting and subscriber management, along with an impressive analytics package.

HTML5-Powered E-Readers for the Browser
by Paula J. Hane
Starbucks recently announced the launch of its Starbucks Digital Network, in partnership with Yahoo! The offer of free Wi-Fi in its U.S. stores caught my eye, but I was even more interested in the free content (some normally subscription-based), which was billed as a "collection of hand-picked premium news, entertainment, and lifestyle content along with local insights and events." But wait, there was even more hidden in the press release: There were free ebooks from major publishers, courtesy of the Bookish Reading Club and New Word City. But here's the sentence that propelled me to investigate this matter further for this article: "A new HTML5 reader, powered by SkyShelf from LibreDigital, allows customers to read books in the browser on their laptops, tablets and many smartphones."

INTERNET LIBRARIAN INTERNATIONAL

THE LIBRARY INNOVATION CONFERENCE

 October 17 & 18, London

ILI's Programme Director, Val Skelton, celebrates librarian superpowers. 
Librarians are leaders in tech, organizational influencers, expert marketers (often working with a zero budget), change managers, skilled data crunchers and expert internet searchers--and so much more. ILI's conference programme celebrates the incredible range of roles, skills, and initiatives librarians are carrying out every day. Over two days this October, six conference tracks highlight the importance of the internet librarian's role.

THE NEW LIBRARY, THE NEW LIBRARIAN – exploring some of the strategies, structures, teams, skills, services and collaborations librarians are using to ensure they stay at the cutting edge.

USERS, UX, AND USAGE – understanding how libraries are working with users to redesign services, spaces, and to understand usage.

CONTENT CREATIVITY – investigating how libraries are creating, curating, and marketing digital collections, how librarians are publishers in their own right, and how they are driving collaborative content creation.

FIGHT THE FAKE, FIND THE FACTS – celebrating two of the librarian's super powers--advanced search techniques and nurturing information integrity--in a post-truth/multi-truth era.

MARKETING THE LIBRARY – sharing stories of librarians who are influencing use and expanding audiences for their services and collections from the DJ librarian to the digital storyteller.

NEW SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS – exploring why the scholarly communications landscape is changing, and what this means for libraries and information professionals.

In addition to a series of one-hour workshops - ILI Extra - covering a wide range of specialised skills and topics, from tech topics to personal development, ILI also hosts two one-day pre-conference workshops:

Websearch Academy 2017 explores the intricacies of research on the web. Our global expert speakers look at advanced search, evaluation of search engines, apps relevant to serious research, social media search, and analysis of search results.

Marketing Your Library Service: Principles and Actions--In libraries we spend so much time curating our content and services that sometimes we don’t put enough focus on telling people about what we do. We do so much, but how do we ensure people hear about what we offer and understand what we do?
