From the ALA OITP:

In an article published yesterday, Alan S. Inouye, director of the American Library Association’s Office for Information Technology Policy, announced that staff members from the ALA tech policy office will serve as guest writers for Digital Book World.

The blog will feature various perspectives from the library community on the e-book marketplace, as well as the implications for libraries.

 

“The once clear and sequential lines from author to publisher to distributor to retailer to end user are now blurred and promise to become re-invented,” Inouye said in the article. “These changes throughout the publishing ecosystem also portend strategic re-alignment for libraries and their roles in society. Revolutions indeed.”
