Ventura County Library is proud to announce access to the Library Journal SELF-e program. SELF-e is an innovative collaboration between Library Journal and BiblioBoard® enabling authors and libraries to work together to share notable self-published ebooks to eager readers looking to discover something new.
Using SELF-e, Ventura County Library is able to take submissions from local authors and make their ebooks available to participating libraries across the state on BiblioBoard’s award-winning PatronsFirst™ platform. These ebooks are available with no multi-user limitations.
Ventura County Library Director Jackie Griffin says, “Adding BiblioBoard and SELF-e to our digital eLibrary offering reinforces Ventura County Library as a center for community engagement. We are excited to promote local authors and put diverse and self-published books into our reader’s hands.”
Indie authors who submit their work to Ventura County Library also have the opportunity to opt-in to have their book selected by Library Journal editors to become part of a unique discovery platform for participating libraries across the United States. This emerging indie discovery platform enables patrons to read ebooks on any device, at any time.
“Leading indie authors agree that discovery and building an audience of readers is the biggest challenge faced by Indie authors. This is a program built to drive author discovery in their local communities and in libraries around the country,” says Mitchell Davis founder and Chief Business Officer of BiblioBoard.
