Publiseer to Service 3,000 Libraries with CloudLibrary

The team at Publiseer has disclosed that it will now deliver digital content to over 3,000 book libraries around the world, including the US, the UK, Canada, and Australia.

This will be made possible with the use of cloudLibrary, a lending platform by Bibliotheca, which has been a highly requested distribution channel from most of Publiseer’s author.

Two months ago, Publiseer announced that it will be taking its library distribution even deeper with its addition of Baker & Taylor as part of its library distribution service. Now, the distribution goes even deeper with the addition of cloudLibrary.

Publiseer, a Nigerian digital content distribution company, these new libraries to be added to its platform have hundreds of thousands of eBooks and very engaged readers.

All books published by Publiseer will automatically be distributed to cloudLibrary after December 20, 2018, a statement from the firm said.

“The upcoming holidays might delay the regular distribution process. However, we’re working harder to expedite the distribution process”, says Chidi Nwaogu, Publiseer’s Chief Executive Officer, who was recently invited to The Future Leaders Forum 2018 by The Future Awards Africa in partnership with the University of Sussex.

The cloudLibrary platform offers royalties based on their standard library model and “Pay Per Use” (PPU) option. With the standard library model, the library purchases a single copy of an author’s book to lend out. As a book is purchased for lending Publiseer provides a higher library price, which is three times higher than the original list price of the book at other bookstores like Amazon. Of course, the royalty of the author will be paid out after this higher price.

With the PPU option, a check-out of an author’s book by a patron triggers a sale. The price of a check-out is 30% of the book’s original list price. For Publiseer’s authors who use the Premium Distribution Option, they get to keep all the royalties they earn from Bibliotheca. Publiseer is a digital publisher that lets writers and musicians from low-income communities in Africa publish, promote, protect, and monetize their digital contents across hundreds of partner stores worldwide, at no charge, with just a single click. Publiseer has been described by Konbini as “one of the largest digital publishers in Africa”.
