Shelf-Ready Book Program

East View also offers a shelf-ready book program that allows libraries to get their materials to users faster while also reducing technical services costs. Our shelf-ready program includes the provision of full MARC records and in-house physical processing.

We are working on expanding our language options for technical services in the future.

Our full MARC records are RDA compliant and include LC Call numbers and LCSH subject headings, Dewey (on request) as well as 9XX fields according to your unique requirements.

Our in-house physical processing services include:

  • Barcodes
  • Spine label(s) and protector
