Every year we offer thousands of appropriate titles on a contingency basis whereby all participating libraries can return any unwanted publication for full credit. Our experience and expertise translate to a returns rate of less than two percent. We hit the target more than 98% of the time!
No two university or research libraries are alike. We employ an exclusive approval plan profile to nail down the unique collection requirements of each library. In this era of library redefinition, we let your specifications fine-tune our selection criteria to achieve the most relevant array of publications appropriate for your institutional and historical idiosyncrasies.
We do not engage in monkey business. We respect our approval partners’ budgets and observe them carefully. We avoid cost overruns and we spread shipments of books evenly over the course of the year.
If returns are necessary, they can be sent to our US address where customs requirements are straightforward and delivery trustworthy.
Key personnel on our staff are professional librarians, many with years of experience in identifying and acquiring Mexican academic publications. They know both sides of the coin: institutional library requirements and Mexican procurement intricacies.
The privilege of partnering with many academic libraries for so many years has provided us with the tools and temperament to understand and fulfill your needs for Mexican publications better than anyone else.
Libraries love our approval plans because they trust our judgment, perseverance, integrity, and discernment.
Some of our approval plan partners include the following:
Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut (Germany)
Linga Bibliotek (Germany)
New York Public Library
Oxford University (Great Britain)
The Library of Congress (US)
University of California – Los Angeles
