*Event Description*

Standards are critically important elements that can make any business
process more efficient. The traditional print subscription services model,
the process of handling standing book orders by libraries, and even the
process of buying, selling, and consuming ebooks through a variety of
platforms all require standardized business processes to efficiently get
content from publishers through vendors to libraries and ultimately to

As our community adapts to changing paradigms regarding service and
ownership models specific to digital publishing, both the library and
publishing communities need to consider the implications of these changes.
Print content distribution was centered on a sales model, where the
transfer of ownership of a physical object was a core element of the
transaction; this is often not the case with digital assets.  Generally,
content is licensed and access is limited; by rights, by term, or by
community served. The implications of this shift are quite broad both for
content providers as well as libraries.  What are the business practices,
roles and responsibilities, on both sides of the new digital exchange that
all parties need to be aware of and incorporate to ensure efficient
information exchange?

*NISO and BISG will explore these issues during the 9th Annual NISO/BISG
Changing Standards Landscape.*  During this free half-day symposium held
annually at the American Library Conference, speakers will explore the
evolving business model processes that some community members are putting
into place, discuss what is working and what isn't, and identify problems
that remain to be solved.
