SELF-e is an innovative collaboration between Library Journal and BiblioBoard that enables public libraries to provide curated self-published e-books to library readers in a simple and elegant way. The session will give an overview of how the program was conceived, how it works and lessons academic libraries can take as it has been implemented across the country. Representatives from BiblioBoard, Library Journal and NC Live will discuss how SELF-e can represent certain populations on campus—i.e., student, alumni, or faculty. Ms. Cook will discuss Issues in collecting Self Published Books for Academic Libraries. Ms. Marsh will lead exploration with the panelists on how peer-review can be incorporated into these types of publishing ecosystems.
