What is a "widget"?

The NetGalley widget is a link to invite and auto-approve your own contacts. It is a customizable hyperlink that can include the book jacket and title/text. You can copy and paste the widget into your own email to send to your contacts.

The widget grants the reader auto-approved access to that particular title, so you don't need to worry about finding and approving a request and the reader will have instant access to download the title once they've signed in via the widget link.

You will always be able to see who has accessed your titles, even if they've signed in via a widget.

We find that readers are much more likely to sign in and download a title when they are directly invited and auto-approved with the widget!
