Authors – Collection Guidelines

Local authors are welcome to submit an application to have their work included at the branch of their choice, or in the eBook collection. Local authors are City of Ottawa residents. Eligible donated books for possible inclusion in the Ottawa Public Library’s collection have been published in the last 2 years.

The Ottawa Public Library welcomes submissions by authors outside of Ottawa for inclusion in the library’s collection, when that material:

  • Fits the scope of the Library’s collection, and
  • Meets our Materials Selection Criteria.
