Your New Profile Walkthrough - June 8, 2022

Dear NetGalley member,

We are thrilled to announce some exciting updates to NetGalley that will help us customize your NetGalley experience!

New Profile Walkthrough

We’ve made some important changes, so over the course of the summer we will be requiring all members to confirm or update their Profile information. Don’t worry, it will be fast & easy! 

Over the next few months we will be rolling out a new Profile Walkthrough to all members in stages—look for an email the week before your specific account will get this new feature. When your time comes, just visit your NetGalley account and you will be prompted to confirm (or update) your Profile information using a guided walkthrough.

Confirm Your Member Type

For the first time, we’re giving you the chance to confirm your Member Type!

Your Profile Walkthrough will suggest a Member Type based on your existing Profile—but if your job has changed or you realize something else is a better fit, you can easily change your Member Type. We have new options, and once you complete the Walkthrough, you will not be able to change your Member Type within your Profile—so carefully consider your primary audience and where you promote books.

Remember: your Profile is the most important tool you have for telling publishers how you recommend books, and it’s what publishers see when deciding to approve your requests.

We are also introducing a new Member Type specifically for those who work in the publishing industry. If you are an author, agent, or work at a publisher but use a member (reader) account to access books, you should choose the Book Trade Professional Member Type.

All members will need to complete the Profile Walkthrough by December 2022, and we’ll send reminders as the deadline nears. If you have any questions during the Profile Walkthrough, please visit our Knowledge Base or reach out to our friendly support team

It is a pleasure and a privilege to help you discover new books. Thanks as always for your continued support of NetGalley!

All best,

The NetGalley Team
