Indie Photobook Library  Larissa Leclair  
From the site
“Founded in 2010, the Indie Photobook Library seeks to showcase and preserve photography books not readily viewed by the general public. The photobooks in this collection include self-published photobooks, photobooks independently published and distributed, photography exhibition catalogs, print-on-demand photobooks, artist books, photozines, photobooks printed on newsprint, limited edition photobooks, non-English language photography books, etc.; in short, photobooks that are not collected by traditional libraries in the United States.
This collection will accept submissions on an ongoing basis and will be a public non-circulating library. In the far future the collection will be donated in its entirety to an appropriate archive. The intent is to have the material accessible in one location for the interested public and scholars looking at the work of a particular photographer or studying trends in contemporary photobook publishing.
