SELF-e Select is now Indie Author Project (IAP) Select! The collections will include not just the Fiction and YA selections from Library Journal (which will continue as normal), but also curated eBooks from other partners such as Publishers Weekly, Black Caucus of the ALA, and regional library editorial boards around North America working within the IAP Contest network. 

Promotional materials are being created and updated to reflect this change.
