We haven't implemented it yet, but our plan is to use the $19/month Pro version of Issuu.com. Upload a PDF version of the mag and it is automatically converted to an interactive flip-through version for visitors.
we use a web-based solution through the vendor, imodules, that we use for our alumni website. so our magazine is integrated into www.colgatealumni.org. we do offer a straight-up PDF version of the site as well from the landing page.
we are looking at products like Issuu, which we already use for some admission print pieces, but aren't sure we want to totally abandon the web-based option. the potential cost-savings is appealing, we now pay a former student to upload the magazine content, and the PDF products are getting more versatile.
I am not sure there is a solution. We are toying around with throwing up something in WordPress, but I can't help but wonder if these publication -- even the online versions -- are on the evolutionary path to extinction.
