narrative research techniques to reveal how enterprise
role-players influence content and technology purchasing.

Association and the Special Libraries Association. Full

workshops discussing how the results relate to their own
organizations' perceptions and goals. Summary reports will

The New Publishing:
Evolving Models for Marketing and Monetizing Content
With the publishing industry in turmoil, models for
monetizing content are beginning to take on greater
importance. A range of services and platforms are emerging
that are offering publishers both old and new options for
licensing and distributing content in innovative ways. The
Web, mobile platforms and even printed materials are all
fair game for these evolving services and must be weighed
carefully by content and technology companies. This
research will evaluate the marketplace for licensing and
monetization services, review vendors using Shore's
exclusive evaluation models and provide recommendations for
publishers and other content services providers.
