Librarians are always eager to fill their shelves with new books. They could be looking for the latest memoirs, a new title from bestselling authors or they could simply be looking for a book like yours. After all, their patrons are always looking for new reads too. So we’ve partnered with Baker & Taylor and Library Journal to create an advertising service that should help you pique the interest of librarians—our Library Marketing service.
With this service, you get:
- Baker & Taylor Catalog Super Annotation Listing – We eliminate the guesswork and get straight to the main offer (your book) by advertising in a Baker & Taylor Catalog that best fits your book’s genre. Here, your ad will be seen with title information, cover image, and a description of up to 75 words. Click here to see the full list of digital catalogs.*
- Emerging Voices Microsite Ad - This microsite was created by Baker & Taylor to address the need for a trusted source for key decision makers who are always on the lookout for new titles. Your book will be featured for two weeks on the front page of the microsite. After this, the ad will be transferred to other pages on the site under their corresponding categories. Your book will be advertised on the site for a total of three months.
- Baker & Taylor TS360 Homepage Banner (1 out of 4) - Your book, alongside three other titles will be on display for two weeks in Baker & Taylor's TS360, a web-based ordering platform that allows customers and libraries to purchase print and digital titles.
