Description of Service
Midwest Library Service's (MLS) specialties include the procurement and supply of current and retrospective books published or distributed in North America. MLS specializes in and maintains a current title inventory of university press publications and scientific/technical publications. MLS routinely accepts special orders for items from small and hard-to-locate publishers as well as books no longer in print. Customers can place orders through Midwest's web-based system, InterACQ, or by e-mail, fax, telephone, or mail. OPTIONAL SERVICES: MLS offers an approval plan with comprehensive coverage of university press publishing. Profiles are established based on subject (Library of Congress Classifications), non -subject, and publisher criteria. MLS offers Out-of-Print searching for books thought to be in print at the time of ordering as well as books known to be out-of-print. PROCESSING: Midwest can supply shelf-ready processed books. Cataloging data is available electronically, in card and label sets, or by CD-ROM. Cataloging is available with Dewey, LC, and NLM call numbers and LC, Sears, and NLM subject headings. Circulation kits (card, pocket, and labels), barcodes, and paperback pre-bindings in several different formats or paperback cover-ups are also available. MLS is a WorldCat Cataloging Partner.
