What do publishers, book programs or authors need to know to contribute content to NNELS?

Multiple Titles

National Network for Equitable Library Services offers bulk content ingestion for publishers, authors, partner accessible format producers, and others.

NNELS highly prefers DAISY or EPUB 3 formats if available, or electronic text in .doc/.docx format, but can accept the following file formats:

  • Text with images: .epub, doc, .docx, .rtf, .pdf (highly preferred as single file per title)
  • Audio: .mp3 (with playlist, and preferably zipped), .wav
  • DAISY 2 or DAISY 3 in .zip

For further metadata, filenaming, and file delivery information, refer to Publisher Requirements.

Single Title

If you have a single title to contribute, please email us with the following:

  • title information (title, author, reader, length, etc.) - as detailed as possible
  • file or link to file
  • statement allowing NNELS to distribute and use the files as per the terms of use, specifying whether it is only for those with print disabilities (login required), or freely available (no login required)
