59% Of Librarians Use Digital Galleys To Find Titles

More than 59% of librarians use digital galleys to find titles for purchase for their library. This is according to a new report from NetGalley and the American Library Association, which surveyed 1,200 librarians which are also NetGalley users about how they use digital galleys.

While most librarians find out about books through the trade press, librarians also rely on direct publisher out reach, word of mouth and catalog browsing to find new titles. The report also found that 41% of librarians use digital galleys to find new titles to recommend to patrons.

More than 85% of the respondents said that they read digitally. Apple devices dominate librarians reading, followed by desktop computers, the Kindle, then Nook. Follow this link to see the complete study.
