Your Multilingual Solution For Material In Over 25 Languages
Sourcing material for your multilingual collection can prove to be a challenge! Library Bound is pleased to be your one-stop supplier for print and audio-visual material in 29 languages.
Once we have established the types of world language material the library is looking for, LBI works with a supplier to order material that fits their guidelines. We work with various suppliers in each language to identify what types of material are popular amongst each region, focusing on bestselling authors and titles that are expected to have longevity within the collection. LBI then reviews the material once it arrives to ensure it meets the libraries criteria.
We consult with our longstanding distributors for suggestions of popular World Language material. We also read reviews from professional publications like Library Journal and Publishers Weekly for any recommended international titles to include in future orders. For Spanish material, we review publisher’s catalogues and websites for updates on new releases and popular titles. LBI orders Spanish material on a monthly basis, and otherwise all other world language material is delivered once a year.
We currently source material in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese (Simplified & Traditional), Dutch, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Tamil, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu and Vietnamese. This includes adult and juvenile print, as well as AV material when available.
