In the hopes of providing a more formal structure to its collaboration with publishers, GLLI is introducing a new framework for its engagement with the international presses whose global titles we are seeking to promote into the Anglophone library framework. We have envisioned this framework as an annual subscription program that will provide certain benefits to publishers in the form of guaranteed features and ads on our website and newsletters/catalogs, in addition to access to our exhibits table at the American Library Association conferences (additional fees entailed for this).
The annual fee will provide the following: a listing in the relevant annual adult and children’s pan-publisher catalogs (which will be made available on our website and sent out to at least 1,500 librarians directly); 1 publisher spotlight column; 6 title pick, review, or excerpt features on our blog (your choice); inclusion in our library-themed reading lists; 4 weeks of advertising (1 ad) on our blog’s sidebar or bottom edge; and the members-only opportunity to participate in our ALA Annual conference booth (for an additional fee). We will also offer select special features for additional charges, including extended or additional ads on our website ($50 for an additional full month) and 3 additional book excerpts for $30.
Besides our blog, which has almost 500 followers (mostly librarians), we also maintain Facebook and Twitter pages with 1,800 and 2,900 followers respectively. As we increase our contacts into the library world, these numbers will continue to grow, providing solid access points between publishers, translators, and librarians seeking to internationalize their collections with both translations and world languages titles.
Our pricing schedule will remain attune to the needs of both small and large publishers. Our 2019/2020 membership fee (purchasing a membership in 2019 will provide membership services through December 2020) is as follows:
$100 – 1-2 full-time employees
$250 – 3-9 FT employees
$400 – 10-20 FT employees
$800 – 20+ FT employees
