Getting Your Share of Library Sales

In a perfect world...all libraries would select new materials based solely on merit.

North American libraries spend billions of dollars for new products every year. Unfortunately, with tens of thousands of new titles being published annually, librarians are inundated with hundreds of solicitations every week, far more than they have time to peruse.

For the small publisher, getting noticed, by the appropriate librarian can present an overwhelming challenge. Money won't help in most cases.

In addition, librarians have special requirements. They may need Library of Congress Cataloging, MARC Records, or annotation cards. They may request special binding or book processing.

Or, they may simply prefer to place large orders, for a variety of titles from several publishers, with a single source. Any or all of these demands may be impossible for even large publishers to fulfill.

Quality Books Inc. provides you with the opportunity to reach thousands of public, school, academic, corporate, and special libraries with a variety of marketing and distribution programs.

Each year, QBI's professional sales reps make thousands of face-to-face sales visits to libraries.

QBI has distribution agreements for our annotations and approvals programs with many of America's largest libraries.

QBI mails more than 1 million annotations to subscribing libraries every year.

Annually, thousands of libraries visit QBI's exhibits at state, regional, and national library conferences.

QBI's electronic database of thousands of small press titles is always online when our reps place their library orders electronically or online.
