The Business Basics unit differentiates projects and programs, and introduces concepts and considerations around costs, funding, profit, and economies of scale and scope. This unit also connects ethical and business considerations for library publishing, and it discusses how to plan for the longevity of published materials. By covering these important building blocks for the management and assessment of operations, this unit will support a shared vocabulary for communicating with other non-library stakeholders regarding business operations.
