HELP WRITE THE FUTURE OF BOOKS IN AUSTRALIA
In this time of rapid change in the book industry, the Australian Government’s Book Industry Strategy Group (BISG) is seeking your view on the future of books in Australia.
Digital book production and global online distribution are fundamentally changing the nature of the industry. The BISG, chaired by the Hon Dr Barry Jones AO and with membership from representatives across the book supply chain, has been established to:
- examine how the Australian industry can prosper in the digital marketplace;
- consider the immediate challenge of making the supply chain for printed books more efficient;
- explore how the print and electronic supply chains might be integrated through the development of viable business models; and
- engage with other advisory bodies, organisations and Australian Government agencies that have an interest in this issue.
The views of industry practitioners and of consumers are vital to determining how the Australian industry may be structured in the future. The BISG invites you to contribute to this discussion by making a written submission.
To participate, or to get more information, visit www.innovation.gov.au/bisg or phone (02) 6213 7898. Submissions will be accepted from 18 October to 10 December 2010.
