Resources Built For Librarians: Microsites

Helping libraries thrive is one of our core goals at Baker & Taylor. One way we do that is by providing librarians with countless resources so they can make the best use of their time and resources. We curate lists, create free marketing materials, publish digital catalogs, distribute newsletters and much more. Today, we’re talking about our microsites—essentially a miniature website, built by us, that is focused on a particular genre or theme.

These sites make it easier for librarians to narrow down their searches. Looking to build out your essential backlist titles? We have a site for that. Or maybe you’re hoping to discover new authors. We’ve got you covered there too. We’re constantly updating over 20 microsites, providing librarians like you with fresh material that will simplify collection development.

As a bonus, you’re able to add titles directly to your cart and then, once you’re ready, purchase from Title Source, our trusted ordering platform.

Some of our microsites include…

BBC – This site features the best in British Entertainment with BBC’s most popular series.

Emerging Voices – Take advantage of the growing indie market and check out premier titles from independent authors.

University Presses with AAUP – This specialized microsite celebrates university presses, specifically throughout University Press Week from November 9 to 15. The site features an array of genres and titles, all published by universities.
