SIBAmembers Water Coolers
Have a question that needs a fast answer? Want to catch up on industry gossip? Or maybe just rave a little bit about the book you are reading? The SIBA Water Coolers are the place to do all that and more. SIBA recognizes that one of the greatest resources the organization possesses is the accumulated knowledge and experience of its members.
SIBA's ongoing discussion group, hosted by Google, is an online forum for booksellers and industry professionals to meet, exchange news and ideas. SIBA membership is not required to join in the conversations, but the group is carefully moderated to keep the discussions on topic and of interest to booksellers.
SIBA member-only discussion groups:
We now have a group specifically for SIBA Booksellers, which is only open to our core members. Share documents, visit the forum, email other group members, check the group calendar.
