Semiannually, we produce a catalog of Scientific, Technical, and Health Science titles
to be published or distributed in North America. Prompt delivery of these books is assured
when you order from Midwest Library Service.
Our catalog encompasses most presses publishing in sciences. We provide new title
information for 10,000 titles per year. As you can see from the accompanying list of publishers, our coverage is comprehensive. 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.
Printed Slips: Each entry 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 specialist, and librarians. We
provide this catalog 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.
Internet Records: Midwest Library Service's web-based InterACQ site
provides timely access to all titles in our Sci-Tech-Health Science 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 specialists, librarians, etc. with access to the Internet. As with printed
slips, 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.
