  5. 5. 55 It’s a solution Ideal process for Library Simplified Search for title in catalog Sign in to borrow Download eBook to device 3 Steps or less Discover | Borrow | Read
  6. 6. 66 Why are we doing this?
  7. 7. 77 The current market solutions are flawed… Search for title in catalog Current process Find record in eBook format Follow link to eBook site Sign in to eBook site Download eBook to device Sign in to catalog Up to 19 steps today
  8. 8. 8 …and it shows. 157% 209% -50% 0% 50% 100% 150% 200% 250% Library Commercial Library eBook adoption trails commercial sector by 52% eBooks Physical Books 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% Good to Excellent Fair to Poor How is your library eBook Selection?

This gap is lasting user dissatisfaction.
  10. 10. 1010 Strategy & Approach
  11. 11. 11 The Strategy Technology Needs • Interoperability (DRM, platforms, formats, tools) • Standards and open specifications • Accessibility compatibility Market and Industry needs • Less monopoly, monopsony (high costs, bad licensing, limited choice, bad UX) • Less channel isolation/lock-in • Access the broader market (self publishing, independent publishers, Public Domain) • Lack of legal “digital right of first sale” • Better library policies • Better content licensing Core Strength • Librarian knowledge of books (Readers Advisory) • Scale and Money • Public trust • NYC developer community Changes • Improving standards, • Open specifications, • Open source community • DRM alternatives (LCP, URMS) • More APIs • New technology • Market competition Address a need, take advantage of a change in the industry and use your core strengths.
  12. 12. 12 Reallocate our human and financial capital • The ICT landscape can be viewed as a set of specialized ecosystems, each comprising a “platform” • Tech firms often seek to establish their own platform(s) • Platforms generally exhibit “lock-in” • Switching costs • Network effects • Barriers to entry by competitors The Platform Game Open Standards & Interoperable Platforms • Lower barriers to entry • Lower switching costs between providers of platform components • Same tools, skills applicable across platforms • Promotes competition among multiple implementations of a given architecture • Network effects accrue across all adopters not solely a single platform provider • Open platforms as generative architectures
  13. 13. 13 Collaborate and support open standards Open Publication Distribution Systems (OPDS) Lightweight open standard based on RSS/ATOM used to create catalogs that enable the aggregation, distribution, and discovery of content by any user, from any source, in any digital format, and on any device. EPUB A unified format standard for text-centric content that reduces costs, foster services and content innovation, and ensure an interoperable open ecosystem OPDS Cross-organization global collaboration necessary for success Consider getting involved in IDPF, BISG, and/or Readium!
  14. 14. 14 Content Creation Aggregation Print Production Marketing Online Distribution Consumption Content Creation Aggregation Digital Production Marketing Online Distribution Consumption Libraries Role in Physical: Consumer, Distributor, Marketer Define ourselves in the value chain. Library’s Current Role: Consumer (We subsidize eBooks readers) Reader’s Advisory Circulation Collection/Curating Physical Book Value Chain eBook Value Chain Opportunity ? Aggregation Digital Production Marketing Online Distribution Consumption
  15. 15. 15 • Over the past 4 years NYPL has simply put more money into eBooks • However there is approximately a 15% cost penalty • Pursuit of content price reductions may offer a more efficient means of growing circulation 65% 50% Average annual growth of eSpend Average circulation growth of e collection Percent Growth eCirc and spend - 50 100 150 200 250 Current Users Potential Users Circulation Potential * Sample Data: Top ten titles from Hachette on our 3M Cloud Library and historical Hachette content spend and circulation performance. * Sample Data: NYPL p v e circulation analysis data Seek better ROI
  16. 16. 16 Accessing the broader market would actually be more effective in bringing popular content to Library users. • The two largest retailers Amazon and Barn’s & Noble represent the lion share of the eBook market. • Their retail numbers provide a some profound insight into the eBook market over Book Industry Data Unit sales show that Indie publishers provide the most popular content Indie Published, 39% Small Medium Publishers, 8% Amazon Published, 15% Big Five Published, 34% Uncategorized/ Single Author Publisher, 4% Source: July 2014 Author Earnings Report (Amazon) Indie Published 30% Small Medium Publishers 19% Amazon Published 0% Big Five Published 50% Uncategorized/ Single Author Publisher 1% Source: July 2014 Author Earnings Report (B&N) Consider alternative publishers
  17. 17. 17 17 Use DRM for rights management, not lock-in • DRM makes it difficult to move eBooks between devices and traps readers into a single retail channel. • DRM is employed on 100% of Big 5 published works, and only 50% of indie published content. • Indie titles without DRM sell twice as many copies each, on average, as those with DRM on Amazon. This suggests DRM is being used to lock consumers into suppliers as opposed to protecting the copyright
  18. 18. 1818 Short term 1. Improve user satisfaction 2. Acquire more eContent (more copies, more titles, more vendors) 3. Improve user experience in eBook discovery and access to make the Library a viable “one-stop shop” for finding and managing media 4. Turn high-quality, Public Domain and mid-list titles into Library bestsellers through new models of Recommendation and Discovery Long Term 3. Promote open source and inter-operable eBook technology 4. Improve collection acquisition costs 5. Approach authors directly to publish and acquire licenses 6. Become a “market maker” through a system-wide effort to promote books online and through live programs Keep at it 7. Approach publishers directly (as opposed to aggregators) about a different deal for libraries 8. Explore lobbying and legal positions that would improve copyright vis-a-vis lending eBooks Approach
