Getting Your Titles Into Libraries
Executive Director, Audio Publishers Association
Executive Director, PubWest
Libraries have long contributed to the publishing sales cycle. We will take a look at some key statistics that should encourage authors to explore the market, ensure their titles are available to libraries, and prime them to be seen by buyers. We will discuss how to interact with librarians, what librarians look for when they are selecting titles, formats that appeal, and different ways you can sell to libraries. Bring your questions!
1. Understand library buying models.
2. Consider distribution options.
3. Key steps to get market your title to Libraries.
