(Bibliotheca) bibliotheca announced that it has plans to expand the Cloud Library product with the inclusion of pay-per-use pricing models, allowing customers to significantly extend their collection with no up-front cost and no risk.Several great publishers are already on-board, including Blackstone Audio and Hachette Audio. Working diligently with eAudiobook partner Findaway, bibliotheca expects to offer a wide range of eAudiobooks and eBooks under the new pay-per-use model. Unlike traditional ownership-driven digital models, where the content is paid for up-front in full and then loaned to patrons over time, pay-per-use has no up-front costs at all. Instead, libraries can offer an extended range of titles, and are only charged when a title is downloaded. This new and exciting model represents the perfect way to compliment the up-front purchased collection, allowing libraries to offer a much more diverse collection of material with practically no risk.
