University Press Catalog

Preface
Recently published books going out of print concerns all libraries. Midwest Library Service offers selection tools which help the library identify and purchase valuable new books while they are readily available. Our semiannual University Press Catalog provides concise information on university press titles soon to be published.  Prompt delivery after publication is assured when these items are ordered from Midwest Library Service.

Scope
Our catalog encompasses the major university presses (including Cambridge, Oxford, and Toronto) as well as many other publisher imprints distributed by these major presses. A complete list of the major presses is included. The annual output of these presses is approximately 10,000 new titles per year. A profile is employed to assist the library in maintaining its focus, thereby receiving information only in the disciplines that are of interest to the collection.

Format
Printed Slips: Each slip includes a descriptive summary, and titles are sorted in your choice of title, author/title, publisher/title, subject/author or subject/title for easy distribution to various department heads, subject specialists, and librarians. We provide this catalog as a book selection and ordering tool for libraries not currently desiring an approval plan or for use as a checking mechanism against an approval plan.

Internet Records: Midwest Library Service's web-based InterACQ site provides timely access to all titles in our University Press Catalog. Each record includes a descriptive summary and titles can be searched according to LC subject classification, title, author, LCCN, ISBN, and series. InterACQ is available to department heads, subject specialist, librarians, etc. with access to the Internet. We provide this resource as a book selection and ordering tool for libraries not desiring an approval plan or for use as a checking mechanism against an approval plan.
