One of the biggest challenges today with the rise of so much self-published content is to identify which titles to add to the library’s collection. Additionally, where are librarians referring patrons seeking self publishing services? For both academic and public libraries that are collecting self-published materials, how are they deciding what to purchase? If they are using vendors or review sources to vet titles, which ones are doing this the best? The purpose of this session is to review best practices related to self publishing services and content to arrive at a reliable model that works with traditional library functions.
