Electronic publishing (or digital publishing) has been hailed as a deathblow for conventional printing… or possibly just a passing fad. This session will examine how you can get started in this quickly-evolving world of digital publishing. What does it take to create your digital publication (or catalog, brochure, newsletter, etc.) and distribute it to a worldwide audience? What obstacles must you watch out for? What solutions are available, and how can you select the best fit for your business? Plan your first steps on the road to the digital future!

You will learn:
