I’ve had my share of successes and failures in my many years in content-based product management. With this 8-part series, I aim to support product managers tasked with building products that incorporate content, licensed or originally published, into learning and/or research solutions.
David’s extensive experience in academic publishing, his business background, and his sensitivity to the challenges facing both libraries and content providers combine to make him an excellent source of insights and advice.

David is an inspirational executive and publisher, purpose driven and committed to supporting authors to maximize the impact of their work on students, researchers and society more broadly. I would not hesitate to recommend David as a publishing partner, and I look forward to seeing Lived Places Publishing make a lasting contribution at the intersection of social identity and location.

The pandemic may be largely behind us in terms of its impact on universities and libraries being physically open, but there have been lasting effects on textbook and course reading fulfilment. My specific curiosities, as concerns the lasting impact of the pandemic and the library, is the transition from print to digital, the place of the library in the acquisition and delivery of textbooks, and the rise of new providers and new business models. This set of questions led me recently to consider how the landscape has shifted in UK libraries and what this might mean for North American libraries.
In this 6-part series, I cover how to fully leverage partner distribution through the Higher Education library channel. These principles and recommendations apply to assessing and participating in other channels such as the consumer channel, the corporate library channel, or the public library channel as well.
