BiblioBoard and Library Journal Launch Ebook Discovery Service

BiblioBoard worked with Library Journal (LJ) to create SELF-e, an ebook discovery service that helps public library patrons find works by self-published authors.

Authors can use SELF-e’s free submission portal to submit their ebooks, which LJ evaluates and selects on a rolling basis for curated genre collections in participating libraries, with a planned first release early next year. Whether or not they are chosen for the LJ collections, authors can use SELF-e to include their ebooks in statewide public library collections featuring other local authors.

“We didn’t want to be another fee-based review service for self-published titles, as that’s not providing a solution to authors or libraries. We’ve been looking for a way to connect the two for their common audience, the reader,” says Ian Singer, LJ’s publisher.
