What is Popup Picks?
Popup Picks is a digital collaboration between publishers, distributors, library consortia, reviewers and librarians. We have created a modern, hip, mobile ebook service that leverages the library’s knowledge of their own local communities’ needs and reading habits. It creates a frictionless discovery channel for readers to connect with great books and authors, helping drive engagement and sales of those same authors works.
Who is involved?
A primary content partner is Chicago-based Independent Publishers Group (IPG), representing hundreds of the world’s top independent publishers. Popup Picks is delivered to readers on mobile technology built by BiblioBoard and licensed by public libraries around the world. It is promoted to patrons and used by large and small libraries across the US and Canada.
Can I get involved in Popup Picks?
Yes. If you have a passion for connecting great books with readers and want to find a new channel through which to create discovery and promote your best content and authors, becoming a Popup Picks partner may be a good fit for you. Alternatively, becoming a curator is a great way to highlight existing content, promote new material or point patrons to your high quality ebooks.
If you are a publisher interested in working with Popup Picks, please let us know! Use the comments to tell us if you would like to be involved as a content partner, promotional partner, curator or if you have ideas on how the program can be better.
