Ordering is easy and can be done via email, over the phone or through our website. See our Contact page and Ordering Information pages for more details.

We can dispatch Standing Order shipments throughout the year, based on the order agreement and Selection Profile. The frequency of dispatches just depends on the languages in question and the budget.

We can also do all of the order research and legwork for our library clients – simply get in touch via phone or email, provide us with a budget and a language profile (or fill out a specially tailored Selection Profile that we can supply), and our expert staff can put together a list of the most recent, best-selling items in each category of interest (e.g. Adult Fiction, Adult Non-Fiction, Junior books). Clients are then free to make a selection of desirable titles themselves, or our knowledgeable staff can make the selection on behalf of the library!

We can handle those special request titles that your library patrons may ask for, and put together orders based on specific authors or genres.
We can also check online library catalogues to ensure suitability of titles and avoid duplication – this is a completely free service!

All quotes that we supply are excluding GST and are for the goods in question – cataloguing/processing is excluded. We can however put you in touch with cataloguing/processing businesses or obtain those quotes on your behalf.

We use trusted couriers and Australia Post eParcels to get language orders to our library clients quickly, and safely. All shipments are traceable and proof of delivery is given when required.
