The Wisconsin Public Library Consortium is excited to share that Wisconsin’s Digital Library is growing to include some new products and services from BiblioBoard, beginning with the Wisconsin Author Project!
Through this project, made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, libraries are helping local authors get the recognition they deserve for writing great books. Wisconsin residents who are authors of self-published adult or young adult fiction will be invited to submit their book and winners receive $1,000, the opportunity to be a featured author in BiblioBoard’s Indie Rock Stars digital library collection, inclusion in Popup Picks for 3 months, a book review from Library Journal, and the chance to present at the Wisconsin Library Association Conference in October.
The Wisconsin Author Project is only the beginning. The webinar will also cover information about upcoming new initiatives including the introduction of Pressbooks, book writing software that lets users create print and ebooks in all the formats needed to publish, and Popup Picks and BiblioBoard Core, two ebook collections. These will also be available to all Wisconsin residents this coming spring!
If you or your library colleagues are interested in learning more about this and other upcoming WPLC projects in collaboration with BiblioBoard, join us for a free informational webinar on Monday, April 9th at 1:00pm. The webinar will be recorded and there will be an opportunity for Q&A as well. Register to attend!
