How do I start taking submissions from local authors?
Once you sign up for SELF-E, we will coordinate with you to create a branded online submission form for your library where interested local authors can submit their ebooks. We will handle all of the follow-up and migration of the material into your statewide module. There is no limit to how many submissions any library can take from local authors.
 What is the patron access model for the SELF-e platform? Are there turnaways or wait lists?
No, there are no turnaways or wait lists, and there are no limits on checkouts. BiblioBoard is an unlimited multi-user access platform, so librarians can recommend their new favorite ebooks to everyone without having to worry about penalties such as high fees or user limits.
Gone are the days when success in library marketing means longer wait lists or rapidly depleted budgets. With BiblioBoard, ebooks are book club friendly and ready for an unlimited number of users to read at any time.
 How do I subscribe? How much does it cost?
SELF-e pricing is based on population served. We work creatively with motivated libraries to find the most cost-effective way to integrate the service based on your needs. To find out more about pricing, contact us.
Any libraries that are interested in the national SELF-e Select Collections, as curated by Library Journal, can make purchase decisions based on which genres / audiences they are most interested in presenting to their patrons. A library may choose to subscribe to Romance but not Young Adult, for instance. All of the modules will contain an ample number of books at launch and will grow each quarter with newly-curated self-published ebooks, ensuring your patrons will always have something new and interesting to read.
 What is Library Journal?
Founded in 1876 by Melvil Dewey “in the interest of the modern library, and of those desiring to make its influence wider and greater,” Library Journal has evolved with the times to become an indispensable, multi-platform resource for library professionals. LJ believes communities thrive when libraries provide everyone free access to information, promote literacy and learning, protect intellectual freedom, and preserve cultural memory. They honor this mission and all libraries, librarians, and communities that pursue it, aspiring to act as a guide and advocate for all who benefit from what libraries offer, and produce resources and services that strengthen libraries’ value to their communities.
