Indie Author Project Demonstration

  • Vendor Resources
  • Product Demo


OhioNet is proud to introduce a new partnership with the Indie Author Project (IAP), an initiative from BiblioBoard. The Indie Author Project has been around for over 10 years and is in place in over 2,000 libraries across the US and Canada. These libraries are empowering their local authors to submit their own work into the library catalog. This is a simple, turnkey service for library staff with BiblioBoard – their curation partners handling all of the vetting, review, and curation for the library. All you need to do is point your authors to a branded submission page that is created for your library. Here is an example of how that looks – program also comes with the Pressbooks ebook file creation tool that allows local writers to create a fully formatted ePub or PDF file from scratch, free of charge. Finally, in addition to being able to build an archive of local writing, Library Journal reviews the submissions for quality and highlights the best books which then get placed into our royalty program! Some of the top circulating Indie Author Project authors are getting $100 checks every month! You can see more here –
