NetGalley is an online resource that allows professional readers to request access to digital galleys. If you are a reviewer, blogger, journalist, librarian, bookseller, educator, or in the media, you can use NetGalley for FREE to request, read and provide feedback about forthcoming titles.

How CataList works with NetGalley


Loan Stars is a readers’ advisory service that allows library staff across Canada to collaboratively select their favourite forthcoming titles. Using CataList, library staff can nominate their favourite adult fiction and non-fiction titles, the most popular of which will be marketed to libraries and library users alike.

See our Loan Stars - Program Information page for all the details about how publishers can get involved, and librarians can read, request and vote for titles.
