IOBA Works for Booksellers
The Independent Online Booksellers Association is an international trade organization for 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.
The IOBA Standard is the journal of the
Independent Online Booksellers Association and covers the book world, with a special focus on the online used, out-of-print, and collectible bookselling markets. See our Current Issue and prior publications.

IOBA member Suzanne Mantell (Warwick Books) recently contributed a piece to the Los Angeles Editors and Writers Group in which she answers the rhetorical question “Who wouldn’t want to lose 1000 pounds of books in favor of a Kindle?” Her article is reprinted here with her permission.
