As the leader in youth services support in public libraries, Children’s and Teen Services (CATS) of Baker & Taylor, provides a robust program designed to support Librarians and the readers they serve. The CATS team provides collection development services designed with the young and teen reader in mind, including selection lists for Spanish and bilingual language titles.
Many youth services librarians have noted the ease of selection in utilizing the CATS Spanish Selection Lists. For years librarians have been providing positive and constructive feedback on these Selection Lists, which are available in the Baker & Taylor ordering database TS 360. There are several lists which will meet the needs for popular materials, bilingual editions and multiple formats including board books and audio.
Further, TS 360 offers many selection lists supporting the Latinx diversity category. The titles have been categorized by Latinx groups identifying as Puerto Rican, Cuban and Mexican. These have been curated by Kirkus and are updated monthly.
Customized selection lists, lease and automatic shipment plans are also available to support ongoing collection development needs. Select from authors, series, publishers and more in curating your own notification lists. For support with your Spanish language needs visit TS 360 or contact CATS.baker-taylor.com.
All of the collection development offered is inclusive of digital materials as well. Featuring state of the art technology and integration with Baker & Taylor’s Title Source 360 ordering platform, librarians can order digital Spanish language content with ease. With the Axis 360 app, readers can enjoy their favorite titles on the go. Users can enjoy titles across devices: computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
In addition, Baker & Taylor can deliver all Spanish materials cataloged and processed. This can ease staff workloads and get materials into patron’s hands quickly and efficiently.
