If you are with a public library and are interested in being able to nominate titles for LibraryReads from Edelweiss, all you need to do is to log in to Edelweiss (of you have a login) or register (making sure to specify that you are with a public library) and log into Edelweiss. Then you can find any book, and add a rating and submit the rating and your comments or review to LibraryReads from the Your Review link on a title.
Getting Logged In
If you already have a log in for Edelweiss, just go to the site (a shortcut is http://edel.bz)
Then, on the home page in Edelweiss, on the right hand side, you should see a LibraryReads logo, which confirms that you have access to the program.
If you don’t see this logo, you may be not logged in to Edelweiss - you should have the option to login at the top right of this page. If you don’t have an Edelweiss login at all, go to http://edelweiss.abovethetreeline.com/Register.aspx to register.
If logging in still doesn’t make the logo appear, then you may not be in an Edelweiss organization associated with public library. The LibraryReads program is only available to people working for a public library. If you do work for a public library and don’t see the logo, please email Edelweiss support to have your login reassigned.
OK! Once you’re in, all you have to do is go to a book you would like to review, click on Your Review.
You will have the option to submit your review to LibraryReads from the Your Review popup window, as shown. Just pick a rating, add your text, and check the box for Submit to LibraryReads, and save.
Feel free to also check the box for Submit to Publisher. Your comments or review will then also be seen by someone at the publishing house, and they can opt to feature your review or comments in Edelweiss for all users to see. Or just take it as feedback.
Also note that if you also connect with friends in Edelweiss - maybe others at your library, or other people in the library community, you will be able to see their reviews and comments by default, and they yours. Visit the Community tab in Edelweiss to begin building a network.
