Writing a book gives you an opportunity to provide tangible value. It can establish your brand and increase your professional standing. Information professionals are uniquely positioned to take advantage of self-publishing because we already know how to transform source material to online and print materials and because we have editors, designers, and talented peer reviewers in our network.

While self-publishing is easier than ever, reaching your audience and making money from your book is harder for self-publishers; we do our own marketing and distribution so the audience can find our book.
