Distribution of Swedish books in digital formats through commercial and public channels

Birgitta Wallin

The position of libraries and bookshops in the book distribution chain have changed since the arrival of e-books. It is now possible for authors and publishers to sell or lend e-books directly to readers for a small sum and by doing so skipping one step in the distribution chain. What changed strategies will suppliers of Swedish books adopt or envision in relation to changes introduced by the arrival of e-books?

Birgitta Wallin is a PhD student at The Swedish School of Library and Information Science (SSLIS). This is her mid seminar.
