Digital Infrastructure for Diversity - on digital Bookshelf and Google Books

The Journal of Arts Management, Law, and Society, 49(3), s. 171- 187. Doi: 10.1080/10632921.2019.1581114 - Fulltekst i vitenarkiv

Diversity is a core value of cultural policy, and the new global digital conditions for the creative industries mean new challenges for diversity at a national level. Internet has become a new infrastructure for services and platforms, and global actors as Google and Amazon are changing the play. This article is about the digitization of books, the collection of the National Library of Norway and cultural policy. It presents the results from two surveys on book and library consumption, qualitative interviews and document analysis, that capture five diversity dimensions. The results indicate the National Library’s digital collection is contributing to diversity in terms of demography, content, purpose for usage, dissemination and techno-cultural aspects. For policy makers, libraries and researchers the study demonstrates a national digital service’s contribution to expanded diversity.

How to choose a format. Consumers’ evaluation in choosing a format for reading books in Norway

Journal of Electronic Publishing, 22(1) Doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.3998/3336451.0022.102 - Fulltekst i vitenarkiv

This article contributes to the discussion of digital versus physical books and sharpens focus on the consumers of books. Using mixed methods, the article explores the emotional relationship between books, information and technology and provides new insight into the importance of habits, the impact of books as symbols of status, format choice and technology acceptance. The study looks at what are determining factors when choosing a format for reading, and how e-books and physical books compare to each other. Respondents report that their ability to relax with the book is reduced when reading an e-book and that the joy and comfort of reading a book are diminished when reading on a screen. The results confirm and extend previous research in this area and suggest that emotional value should be included in technology acceptance studies for digital reading.

Digital payments for a digital generation. Disruptive technology in book and local newspaper industries

Nordic Journal of Media Studies, 1(1), s. 125- 136. Doi: 10.2478/njms-2019-0008 - Fulltekst i vitenarkiv

Digitalization is both a major cause of the challenges now faced by several media industries and a source of their potential solutions. Within the book and newspaper industries, the value of the physical product is about to be surpassed by that of digitally delivered content, disrupting the distribution system that these industries have relied on for many decades. In particular, digital distribution has radically changed the way in which consumers engage in unpaid and paid media consumption. Anchored in the notion of disruptive innovation, and more specifically related to the idea of distribution as disruptive technology, our study investigates Generation Z’s unpaid and paid consumption of digital books and online local newspapers. Drawing on two Norwegian audience surveys, we find that both industries involve at least one disruptive actor. Generation Z relies heavily on Facebook as a distribution channel for news. Paywalls have a negative effect on the usage of paid online local news, despite the belief that paywalled news is better than free news. In the Norwegian book industry, paper books still have a very strong position among Generation Z. Audiobooks have greater usage than e-books, and we conclude that the real disruptive actor in the Norwegian book industry is the streaming of audiobooks by actors such as Storytel.
