U.K. titles now available - 'one-stop experience for global content'
MCHENRY, Illinois, January 10, 2011 - Follett International, a global supplier of educational materials in 148
countries, announced today it has added more than 4.5 million U.K. and global
educational titles to Titlewave, its online collection development, analysis
and ordering tool.
"We are adapting to a world that expects and wants a one-stop experience
for global content," said Zac Colandrea, vice president, Follett
International. "Therefore, we have exponentially increased the number of
international titles we offer."
Titlewave now offers 6.2 million titles in the U.S. Pre-K-12 market and
U.K. nursery to senior school markets. This is a significant jump from the
1.7 million titles previously offered. Follett International partners with
thousands of U.K. and U.S. publishers and key distributors around the world
to provide books, eBooks and high-quality, curriculum-focused audiovisual
materials. By choosing Follett, Colandrea said educators' orders will be
serviced to their specifications and delivered in a timely fashion, with the
customer service Follett has prided itself on for 135 years.
Colandrea added that the launch of Titlewave will allow Follett to
provide more content to customers, target new markets and provide a more
"international experience" for users. A customer will now be able to choose
among 52 different currencies when accessing Titlewave and enjoy expeditious
delivery capabilities around the world. Titlewave boasts education-based,
full-search capabilities and collection development resources for both
library and classroom collections.
Attendees at the European Council of International Schools (ECIS)
Conference in Nice, France in mid-November received a sneak preview of the
enhanced Titlewave. "Teachers and librarians were very excited to learn they
will now be able to order all of their books from one source," Colandrea
said, "and that they'll receive the same high fill rates and fast turnaround
Follett is known for."
Titlewave is available now at www.titlewave.com. For more
