IOBA Works for Book Sellers
The Independent Online Booksellers Association is an international trade organization of Internet booksellers.
We offer opportunities for continuing
education and provide a forum to network with colleagues and discuss issues that affect us all, worldwide. When you join IOBA you are strengthening the ranks of a trade association that preserves traditional bookselling standards and traditions while embracing new technologies.
We would like to thank all of the visitors and exhibitors who helped to make IOBA’s first Virtual Book Fair a success. This three day event featured over 50 exhibitors, more than 1,100 books/items of ephemera, and drew thousands of visitors from around the world. Plans are already underway for our next virtual book fair. We hope to see you there!
If you have not already done so, we encourage you to head over to the Fair site (https://www.iobabookfair.com/) and put your name on our list to receive announcements about future events.

The Standard: IOBA Journal
The Summer 2016 issue of The Standard features several pieces on the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar (CABS), including an essay on the IOBA scholarship program, and accounts from three IOBA Scholarship attendees of the 2016 seminar.
Rounding out the issue is a piece on book fairs by Jonathan Smalter, and a fluff piece (literally!) profiling Blake, shop cat at Philadelphia Rare Books & Manuscripts Company.
