INWOOD, WV- June 14, 2005 TLC's Web-based acquisitions and collections development service, Online Selection & Acquisitions, now includes titles represented by and available through Quality Books Inc.
Quality Books Inc. (QBI) has been a small press library vendor for 40 years, offering hard to find books and other media to libraries nationwide. The titles the company offers are often overlooked and not well-stocked by other vendors. They include Accelerated Reader titles, in addition to thousands of titles on a variety of subjects. The company is owned by Dawson Holdings PLC, owner of Dawson Books.
QBI mails more than 1 million annotations to subscribing libraries every year, enabling small presses to reach public, school, academic, corporate, and special libraries.
Electronic ordering through Online Selection & Acquisitions is available with QBI.
"We are very excited to be working with TLC to integrate our title information into their Online Selection & Acquisitions product, said Jeffrey M. Tegge, General Manager and Vice President of Sales at Quality Books. It serves as another critical step towards making titles from small and independent presses more widely available to the library market by integrating with established selection and acquisition processes."
Online Selection & Acquisitions manages selection, purchasing, receiving, invoice management, and fund accounting, while serving varied collection needs. It provides a central place for librarians to search for books, music, videos, and other library materials, create selection lists, place orders, and place bibliographic records into their automation system.
Online Selection & Acquisitions is a standalone service that works with any integrated library automation system.
