Many libraries are frequently being asked to host events for self-published authors or to add their books to library collections. It can be difficult to handle these requests. NERTCL’s panel of librarians, including Adult Services Librarian Kelley Rae Unger, Peabody Institute Library, Peabody, MA, Senior Collection Specialist Joan Hansen, Denver Public Library, Denver, CO and Children’s Librarian and self-published author Laurie Collins will discuss ways to manage the influx of programming requests from self-published authors and ways to address self-published materials in your library’s collection development policy. Laurie will also give her unique perspective on the self-publishing process as both an author and librarian. There will be time for questions and discussion following the presentations.
