Ingram’s collection development programs ensure high-demand titles are on your shelves before patrons come looking for them.
Ingram eases the burden of keeping up with popular titles and series. With a variety of standing order programs from which to choose, you tailor programs to meet the needs of your library—and the interests of your patrons.
Our MLS-degreed librarians and media specialists manage each program to contain the materials that generate high circulation. Each program has a specific focus, including titles from popular categories like bestselling authors, series, graphic novels, inspirational fiction, and DVD and video; you may sign up for one or for all.
All Ingram standing order programs provide the ultimate flexibility, with the option of enrolling as "Report Only" or "Auto-Ship" through ipage®, our online account management tool. ipage provides complete access to your program enrollment at your convenience.
iSelectSM helps you select new titles appropriate for your library—and gets them to you fast.
Title selections are based on Ingram’s buying level of pre-publication titles. You select the categories and indicate the levels you want to see. Then, when Ingram makes a purchase of a forthcoming title at your pre-determined level, you are automatically notified.
Whether you’re looking for the hottest titles in certain categories or new titles by certain publishers, iSelect is fully customizable and designed to meet the needs and interests of your library.
Scanning title reviews in the industry’s top journals, making selections on paper, and searching for titles online is a time-consuming task.
Review AlertSM is a convenient and FREE way to streamline the selection process. Ingram notifies you monthly via e-mail of titles reviewed in the journals you select. This allows you to easily access the titles on ipage® and quickly place orders.
There are four Review Alert programs to choose from, including Adult, Adult Reference, Youth, and Youth Reference titles. You can participate in just one—or all four—and all lists can be sorted by Dewey.
You customize your Review Alert program from the following journals:
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
Horn Book Magazine
School Library Journal
