How Selections Are Made

Focus is on Florida award winners, authors, and subject matter. Evaluation includes structure and layout of books, among other factors. Submissions must be a print book published by a traditional publisher; no self-published material or e-books accepted. Email maureen.dorosinski@dbs.fldoe.org for questions on the selection and recording process. If not accepted, the Library will return the books sent for review. Production time averages 9 months to one year. If accepted, the recorded or embossed work becomes the property of this institution and will become available for loan to registered LBPH patrons. Personal copies are not created.
