Collection development and approval plans

Through our approval plan service, we send newly published books directly to your library, simplifying and facilitating your selection and acquisitions process. Our objective is not to replace the function of the acquisitions librarian but to empower him or her by facilitating time management. Our approval plans are a product adapted to your interests and needs, according to a collection development profile that you define. This profile includes criteria of form, content, price, and coverage.
According to the CERLAC (Centro Regional para el Fomento del Libro en América Latina, el Caribe, España y Portugal), 100,000 titles are published in Latin America per year, of which 60% come from Argentina and Brazil. We review these volumes systematically in order to select titles in accordance with your specific collection development profile, facilitating your work and maximizing the use of your budget.
Approval plans can be as extensive or selective as you desire, and you maintain the right, at any moment, to decrease or cease your approval plans, should you in any way be dissatisfied with or no longer interested in our materials.
We rely on staff trained to identify and select materials, generate orders, and send data and confirmation to each client.
Librería Garcia Cambeiro has over 50 years of experience attending to academic and public libraries, and we rely on a deep and wide-ranging knowledge of the Argentina and Brazil publishing industry – qualities that have made more than thirty libraries worldwide trust in our approval plans already.

Libraries can opt for ask to specials catalogs, focus on certain subject areas. LGC is responsible for selecting the titles available and then check against library database, offering a list of missing titles only.
