As e-book sales become a reliable revenue stream, the pressure is on to develop author agreements and P&Ls that reflect this new reality. Projecting sales of print books is something we know but for e-books it's still closer to a guess. The costs to produce e-books are still developing as well. The challenges of fitting digital projects into our traditional accounting systems require a certain creativity. This session will consider the issues of e-bookkeeping for the wired press.

Chair: Robbie Dircks, Associate Director and CFO, University of North Carolina Press

Panelists: Doug Armato, Director, University of Minnesota Press; Timothy Doyle, Assistant Director and CFO, Harvard University Press; Christopher Heiser, Deputy Director, University of Chicago Press; Erik Smist, Director of Finance and Administration, Johns Hopkins University Press; Darrin Pratt, Director, University Press of Colorado
