SELF-e: E-book publishing at the Library The Seattle Public Library is partnering with Library Journal to offer the SELF-e public library e-book discovery service. SELF-e allows Seattle's self-published authors to submit their e-book for circulation at SPL, libraries throughout Washington, and possibly libraries nationwide. This is a great way to reach a wider reading audience and build buzz on your book. Questions? See the SELF-e FAQ.
