Content Strategy Manager at Plymouth University
Jason is responsible for the delivery of print and digital services for the University’s staff, students and partners. In addition to the traditional “shared” library supply model of print and ebook provision. Plymouth also operates a direct etextbook supply model, providing copies of core texts to new undergraduate students. With challenges facing both the publishing world and UK HE sector, his interests lie in developing financially sustainable, mixed models for the appropriate, effective and equitable supply of information to students, incorporating choices of demand driven acquisition, licensed ebooks, copyright cleared digital content, etextbooks, and open access.
