Appointed executive director of the Book
Industry Study Group in September, Brian
O’Leary says the key to his leadership will be
listening to members, whose voices include not
only traditional, established players but also
independent authors and publishers.
CK: When it comes to solutions across the
supply chain, there are a couple of things that
immediately come up. One of them is the
dialogue, perhaps conflict, between the physical
and the digital. BISG has been inclined toward
the physical side of things in the past. Are you
moving now in a digital direction? Or is it a balance you’re after?
BO’L: I think that it’s fair to say that we were relatively late
to embracing digital. The standard itself for digital books, ePub,
was created and managed by another organisation, IDPF
[International Digital Publishing Forum], which is merging
with the W3C [World Wide Web Consortium]. While we were
active in supporting ePub and doing a variety of
other things, we weren’t as active in embracing
the overall supply chain. That’s changed a little
bit in the last five years. For example, we have a
really good initiative in the area of accessibility,
where ePub plays a really significant role in
making content accessible to a print-disabled
audience. But we still have more work yet to do.
The key thing to keep in mind, though, is that
it’s not print or digital, but it’s a print and
digital world. It’s not enough for us to go out
and say, “Well, we’re going to focus on digital,”
because there are still quite a few problems in
the physical book chain as well. I think that the real value of a
BISG membership–the core thing that it gives each of our
member companies and the staff who participate in our
committees and working groups–is an opportunity to shape the
conversation, to change the dynamic, both of where publishing
is and where it’s headed.
