Web site offers U-M authors a way to publicize new work

U-M faculty and staff who would like to publicize books they have written can do so through Books in Print, a new Web site hosted by the Office of the Vice President for Communications.

The site gives university-affiliated authors the opportunity to directly enter and organize information about their books. It can be found at www.ns.umich.edu/books/index.php or accessed from the News Service Web page at www.ns.umich.edu.

“This offers a great opportunity for faculty and staff to spread the news about their latest work, and gives the public a window into the wide variety of topics about which U-M authors are writing,” says Kallie Bila Michels, associate vice president for communications.

Authors who wish to publicize their books will be asked to set up an account giving them access to the site’s data-entry and organization tools. Entries can be organized by category and linked to related Web sites.
