An eBook Publishing Primer : What librarians need to know to help local authors
Where do local authors go to find out about self-publishing an eBook? Why, they should go to the library, of course!
Jo Flick of the Montana State Library and Jodi Christophe of the Missoula Public Library's Web-On-Wheels branch library will introduce librarians to several epublishing options that they can share with local authors interested in self-publishing. The goals of this training are to support local writers, to position the library as an important resource for writers, and to promote the access and archiving of home-grown literature through the local library.
To meet these goals, Jodi and Jo will explain the issues and decisions that authors face when choosing which service they use to self publish, they will provide links to many resources available to authors from epublishing to researching copyright issues. Participants will leave this session with a working knowledge of how epublishing works.
