NetGalley, which delivers digital proofs to readers to help promote and market new books, announced today that it has launched a new initiative for the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), now allowing its members to take advantage of the digital service. NetGalley will validate ALIA member ID numbers within NetGalley profiles.
ALIA members will receive a badge that publishers can use to approve requests, auto-approve librarians and feature their reviews on NetGalley title records.
ALIA members can also use NetGalley to nominate titles for LibrariansChoice, a new program that provides a monthly list of books recommended by Australian librarians.
“Librarians are enthusiastic and influential book recommenders,” said Susan Ruszala, president of NetGalley. “We are so pleased to support the LibrariansChoice initiative, and to work with ALIA to help librarians gain faster access to digital proofs. We fully expect this program to be as successful and wide-reaching as our partnership with the American Library Association and LibraryReads, and are delighted to support public libraries worldwide.”
