The ARTS Calendar, Simplified

Posted By Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance, Friday, April 28, 2017
Updated: Thursday, April 27, 2017

Over the last couple months, SIBA has received a rising number of requests from our members about how to enter their store events into the Calendar at Authors Round the South (authorsroundthesouth.com). The truth is, the ARTS Calendar is based on an older platform, and has always required a separate log in process, which is confusing for many members (and for SIBA Staff!). So we've simplified and streamlined the process:

  1. You can now enter events from your own account at SIBA.

  2. You do not need to be on your store master account. You do not even need to be logged in, (although it will be easier for you if you are).

  3. There are fewer "required" fields, so you don't need to know book ISBNs or enter event descriptions if you don't want to.

  4. You can add all the information and upload book and author photos in one step.

  5. If you want to enter multiple events at once, you can download a spreadsheet template, fill it out, and email it to SIBA at nicki@sibaweb.com.

It will take about 24 hours for any submitted event to appear on the calendar, so plan accordingly. And remember that you earn B3! points when you submit events yourself, instead of letting the SIBA elves enter them on your behalf.

Enter your store events here:

The calendar is one of the most visited sections of the site, and events are promoted in the Lady Banks Newsletter and shared across all of SIBA's social media accounts wherever appropriate. Having your store's events listed not only means more of your customers may see them, but your store becomes more visible to publishers.
