Based on the proven Evidence Based Stock Management (EBSM®) methodology, collectionHQ (CHQ) provides action plans to help librarians develop and manage their collection, saving time and money, improving turnover and aligning the collection with local demand. What's more, collectionHQ is the only solution that works in conjunction with any ILS system so even if you change your ILS vendor, historic circulation is retained. 

Evidence-based Selection Planning (ESP) brings the art of Baker & Taylor's collection development expertise together with the science of collectionHQ's data analytics to create a decision support system integrated with TitleSource 360™. ESP helps public libraries to select the right current and pre-published titles in the right quantities for their communities.

Rotating Reads

Press Reader

Rotating Reads helps you get books when they're hot, return them when they're not.  This program is a great solution to make sure you have high demand titles on your shelves when you need them!  Baker & Taylor's Book Leasing program is a great way to temporarily increase your library's number of popular books with the ability to return them when patron demand has subsided.

To learn more, click here to see our Rotating Reads Book Leasing brochure or reach out to your CATS Manager.

Sustainable Shelves

Sustainable Shelves Program is a complimentary service that helps your library responsibly and sustainably discard weeded or unwanted books from your collections. Just provide us with list of titles you wish to remove from your library, and we will assign a value to each ISBN, pick up the books, and compensate you quickly with either a check or a credit to put towards materials, softwares or services from Baker & Taylor. We’ll even pick up the titles that we don’t consider resaleable, and we will work to responsibly recycle the material on your behalf. Together, we can keep your collections clean and fresh, while also demonstrating a core value of librarianship.



Celebrate TeenTober! Baker & Taylor has partnered with publishers to bring exclusive benefits to Baker & Taylor customers, including LIVE virtual events and special discounts! Watch the video introductions from E. Lockhart and Ruta Sepetys, and find links to the events below.
