Library Bound offers a comprehensive Standing Orders program for both Adult and Children’s titles. Any title that releases annually or semi-annually can be placed on a Standing Order program with LBI. Through our program we are able to negotiate the best possible discounts through consolidated bulk purchasing and we then pass these savings on to the Library. LBI sends master publications lists for Reference titles and Children’s Reference titles and requests that the Library identifies the annual reference titles they are interested in, as well as the quantity of copies, order code and cataloguing and processing requirements (i.e. REF or CIRC). Additional title requests from the library can be added to the profile. LBI also manages subscription services and loose-leaf through publishers such as Carswell, CCH and other vendors.
Library Bound can organize the transfer of any existing standing order titles from other vendors, and/or wholesalers. Online management features for Standing Orders include the option for the Library to assign a specific order code to track and view Standing Orders spending. If the Library has multiple order codes for standing orders, a specific username will be created so that all funds may be tracked.
