Acknowledgement of Electronic Publishing

The changes in publishing that electronic technology brings are rippling through the trade publishing universe as well as through the world of authors who are now able to bring their work to the world. The National Library of Canada recognises these changes and includes the following statements in their information on electronic publications.

In a digital world, everyone can be a publisher. Much of the stigma traditionally associated with ‘self-publishing’ is disappearing rapidly as an increasing number of individuals begin to produce professional-quality electronic publications. Through depositing with the NLC, self-publishers can help to assure that their work is assigned the proper identifying numbers, catalogued by the Library and made accessible in definitive form to the widest possible audience.
