Information for Authors, Musicians and Other Creators Selling Material to the Edmonton Public Library

The Edmonton Public Library collects material in a wide range of formats, representing a wide-range of creators. Each title is evaluated on an individual basis to ensure it meets our general selection guidelines and is in a format suitable for library circulation. EPL does not produce or print material for inclusion in our collections.

If you have a title that you would like considered for EPL's collections, please provide as much of the following information as possible:

  • Your name and contact information (please include your email address)
  • Author or creator's name
  • Title of the item
  • Producer or publisher of the work
  • Contact information for the publisher OR supplier
  • Any related order numbers such as ISBN, UPC, stock number, etc.
  • Date of publication
  • Price
  • Subject matter and intended audience
  • Any published reviews

These details as well as any additional, relevant information should be sent to:


Collection Librarians
Collection Management & Access Division
Stanley A. Milner Library
7 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Edmonton, AB T5J 2V4

Due to the volume and variety of requests, EPL is unable to reply to each request individually. You may be contacted if additional information is required, or a vendor representing EPL may contact you for supplier information if your title is added to our collection.

You may include a review copy of the material with this information, but please note that it will NOT be returned to you and may be dealt with in accordance with the Library’s policy on gifts (see below).

Unfortunately, EPL cannot provide access to eBooks that are not available through our eBook vendors.

Local Interest titles
While EPL includes content specific to Edmonton and area as well as material created by local artists, all material is evaluated on an individual basis. Music CDs by local artists are acquired through Blackbyrd Myoozik in Edmonton.

The Library accepts gifts of books and other library materials, but reserves the right to evaluate and to dispose of them in accordance with the criteria applied to material purchased for the collection by the Library. Gifts of books or other library material which do not fit within the Library's collection policy will be added to the library book sale. No conditions may be imposed on any materials donated to the library.
