NetGalley Partners with Association of American University Presses

netgalley23.pngThe Association of American University Presses(AAUP) has partnered with NetGalley, a Web-based service that has tools for publishers to share digital galleys and press kits.

AAUP members can use NetGalley to reach reviewers, as well as share digital galleys with the international rights market, librarians, booksellers and retailers, bloggers and professors requesting desk copies.

The cost will be determined by the number of titles hosted by the member each month. AAUP members get a 10% discount off the normal NetGalley monthly subscription rate.

NetGalley is free for readers and users can set preferences for the types of books they’d like to read. Members can view title information in the NetGalley Catalog, where they can request galleys from the publisher and view galleys they’ve been approved to access within their account.

AAUP Electronic & Strategic Initiatives Director Brenna McLaughlin had this to say, “Digital galleys are an important new tool for university presses and NetGalley’s elegant solution can offer our members savings in both time and money along with the chance for their books to reach a wider array of reviewers and buyers.”
