Planning on going e-only? Four panelists will examine the issues of switching from print to online from different viewpoints. Two publishers will describe challenges associated with maintaining print and online, and when and under what conditions they would choose to provide e-only. Two librarians will discuss decision-making strategies associated with dropping print and moving to e-only.
