Sustainable Shelves Program
Baker & Taylor’s Sustainable Shelves program helps libraries remove unwanted books from their collections and dispose of them responsibly.
At Baker & Taylor, we harness machine learning technology to create efficient workflows that assist librarians with tasks including the removal of unwanted books, collection development and management, collection analysis, title acquisition and ordering, and cataloging and processing.
The result: Missions are accomplished more efficiently. Money is saved. Resources become available so libraries can focus on new opportunities.
The right workflow is essential for libraries to achieve their goals and optimally serve their communities.
Our Customized Library Services (CLS) can provide shelf-ready materials and collection development strategies and assist with selection, ordering and acquisitions. Solutions and tools to enhance your cataloging and processing capabilities are available, too. When the right workflow is in place, the benefits become clear. Missions are accomplished more efficiently. Money is saved. Resources become available so libraries can focus on new opportunities.
