NEW FROM AMAZON.COM—Book Processing for Public and Academic Libraries

Now public and academic libraries can get MARC records, Mylar jackets, and barcodes with their orders from amazon.com. Go to http://www.amazon.com/processing to complete a processing profile for your library. This augments amazon’s existing services for libraries: the Librarians' Store, online invoicing, approval slips, and partnerships with sellers to sell their used books. In addition, amazon partners with the following organizations

MARCIVE, Inc. for authority-processed records, OCLC for WorldCat metadata records to libraries online, during the acquisitions process. Buy books from Amazon.com, automatically get catalog record, holdings set in WorldCat, and labels. And TLC’s BiblioFile OnDemand for progressive cataloging tools and quality MARC records.
