I'm a librarian. What do you recommend for my Profile?

If you are a librarian, or work in a library, here are a few tips for your Profile:

Basic Information:

  • The name of your library in the Company field.
  • Your Library type (Academic, Public, Primary or elementary school, Secondary school/high school, or Special).
  • In your bio, include your role at the library and your responsibilities.
  • Your library or library system website.
  • If you also post reviews on a website or blog, make sure to provide the link in your Profile, too. And if you talk about books via social media (Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, etc.), include that information.
Reading Preferences:
  • Add the Categories that interest you the most - you'll receive special recommendations on your dashboard and via email based on your interests.
Additional Information:
  • Professional Associations you are a member of, such as CILIP (UK). (Don't see yours listed? Let us know!)
  • Your professional email address, not a personal email.
If you are an American Library Association (ALA) member, please add your ALA member number.

  If you are an Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) member, please add your ALIA member number.
If you have a valid number, we'll add a special designation to your member account, which publishers will see when you request their titles.
