There’s something strange in the neighborhood with Bowker reporting 727,000 U.S. self-published ISBN’s registered in 2015. Who ya gonna call? The Minnesota Library Publishing Project! Come connect with an active community of Minnesota academic and public libraries leading the country in managing the self-publishing explosion; learn the in-and-outs of Pressbooks and how to get the ebooks created in your community into libraries throughout Minnesota using the MN Writes/ MN Reads online collection. Not afraid of no self-publishing, come join the bookbusting team as we conquer self-publishing's ghouls and goblins.
