Companion Sites & Ancillary Materials

Writing a book doesn’t end with the manuscript!

See Resources and Websites Mentioned in the Webinar. These links offer examples for different kinds of materials and book sites.

1) Authors’ sites-linked from the publisher’s page for the book:

Key questions to discuss with the publisher:

  • Will the publisher agree to including a link that takes the viewer away from the publisher’s website?
  • Are you committed to creating and maintaining the page? Do you have the technical skills needed to do so?

2) Password-protected resources on the publisher’s site (note that you may not be able to view all materials on these sites):

Key questions to discuss with the publisher:

  • Can you as author give input into the site design or format, organization, or presentation of resources?
  • Can readers who are not instructors gain access to the site?

3) Companion sites with interactive features on the publisher’s site and third-party applications:

  • Doing Research in the Real World 
Note: If you create an account in VitalSource, you can request electronic review copies of texts and view interactive features.

Add-on subscription to access technical feature and apps:

4) Special features that won’t work on a page

Key questions to discuss with the publisher:

  • What is the author’s role in designing and producing these features?
  • Can you as author act as the subject matter expert for technical or media features? If not, do you have final approval?
  • If your visuals, diagrams, etc. are being used, can you retain your intellectual property/copyright?
  • If a third party or additional subscription is involved, do you receive payment or royalties?
