The Concept of Loan Stars in Terms of Library

Library users can benefit from the unique characteristics of CataList. Seeing and acting on "Recommend" buttons is the major nuance to be considered. Each month, library staff registers at CataList and requests reading copies of upcoming books. Library staff can recommend as many books as possible, though they can only recommend a single book once.

Reading copy requests

If you provide reading copies to some online users, you can allow only particular types of users, submit requests, and enable the online form in CataList. All of your books that fulfill these requirements can be offered to a specific population of readers. If you would like to deliver reading copies to a particular category of users, you just need to check off your priorities (libraries, media, retailers, wholesalers, and/or self-registered users) in the form. Ideally, you can make sure to provide an email address of where you'd like these applications to be sent within your company.

Useful Tips for CataList

If you are a publisher, you should make sure that your book is marked as a Loan Star. There are a lot of things you could do to increase the number of voted for your book. Here are some helpful tips to give your Novelas Eroticas or any other type of books their best chance.

Tip 1: Make sure your books are added to CataList

All Loan Stars rating takes place in CataList. If you donít find your books there, it means that they donít get any votes. The library staff can vote on a book or to request a book to read. Meanwhile, you won't be able to see the vote or request buttons from a publisher profile.

Tip 2: Make reading copies available for library staff

You should make your reading copies easily available. Library staff can't vote for your book if they can't access it. By the way, there is a great collection of books available for requests in a monthly newsletter.

Step 3: Promote forthcoming books

Publishers should ask library staff to vote for their books by offering bookmarks with reading copies, stating Loan Stars in their newsletters, as well as marking books.

Step 4: Support BookNet in promoting your books

You should understand the significance of cooperation. These include communication via social media such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and normativity of forthcoming books.

Step 5: Take part in their online contests

Each month, library staff participates in a contest to win a reward package of three books. The winning reward is provided to one publisher at a time.

After all, publishers must be creative in what they are offering. The high level of creativity is expected from them at the stage of BookNet contests.
