If you are part of GVPL’s Emerging Local Authors Collection, you can submit your ebook to SELF-e at the same time as submitting your ebook to ELAC. Your books will find more readers here in Greater Victoria and a wider audience in other libraries in B.C. and beyond.
SELF-e connects ebooks, libraries and readers through BiblioBoard. If you are an indie author, you can submit your ebook through SELF-e to have it reviewed by Library Journal. Selected books are then included in the curated LJ Select anthologies on Bibliobard, which would help your book reach new readers across North America.
Plus, you can choose to add your ebook to the Indie Canada anthologies on BiblioBoard, making it available to readers across Canada.

Emerging Local Authors Collection
GVPL celebrates Greater Victoria’s rich writing culture with our Emerging Local Authors Collection, featuring self-published, independent and small press books by local authors. Each spring, GVPL launches a new series of books submitted by emerging authors in our community.
Where other (third-party) organizations require personal information in order to provide services on behalf of the Library, the Library makes reasonable efforts to obtain commitments from such organizations that they treat the personal information in compliance with FIPPA and this policy. However, once information is in the hands of other organizations, it is beyond the Library’s control, and the Library cannot be accountable for the use, or further disclosure, of that information.
