Subscription Model: How do we market this? How do we identify possible students who would benefit from this? How does this affect stores bottom lines if successful? What does this mean to the industry and to the stores if all publishers follow suit? Market share, bottom line, affordability, etc.

2:15 - 3:15 pm – Discussion Session 2

Change isn’t coming, it is here: Should stores focus their energy towards recapturing lost adoptions, and sales? Or should focus on a new business model to allow them to transition into and fulfill new services to campus? Or is it a mixture of both?
