Digitise you out-of-print holdings and sell them as print-on-demand facsimile publications. Then come come back to me and let me know how the business is doing!
Cornell University Library has partnered with BookSurge, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, to so publish over 6,000 titles from their collections. “When a book is retrieved online from the library’s Web site, records now indicate whether it is also available as a print-on-demand title via Amazon.com” and there is also a dedicated online bookstore homepage.
