NetGalley simplifies access for ALIA members

A new initiative by digital proofs provider NetGalley will give Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) members faster access to new titles by validating members with digital badges.

Publishers will rely on the badges to auto-approve members, approve requests and feature reviews on NetGalley title records.

NetGalley has also released a new program called LibrariansChoice, which creates a monthly listed of books recommended by Australian librarians.

NetGalley president Susan Ruszala said librarians are ‘enthusiastic and influential book recommenders’. ‘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,’ said Ruszala.
