Just posted to the FLICC/FEDLINK Web site are the latest books prices from FEDLINK vendors. Point your browser to http://www.loc.gov/flicc/dbksprice2.html
to reviewing pricing on services, firm orders, approval plans, leasing plans and physical processing.
Books and other monographic materials acquired through FEDLINK book vendors are priced in terms of a discount off of the publisher's list price for the title. The list price is established by the publisher and announced in the publisher's catalog or other trade listing. The discount categories are established by publication type, and reflect specialities in the publishing industry and concentrations in federal library collections, including:
- subject area - legal, medical, scientific-technical, etc.;
- format or type of publication - audio-visual, large print, mass market paperback, reference, sound recordings, etc.;
- publishing source - university press, government document, foreign press, etc.
For out-of-print materials and other hard-to-locate items, the vendor's price may be a surcharge instead of a discount off list price. Vendors also offer additional discounts for multiple copy orders. If you are uncertain which discount/fee category would apply to a particular title, contact the vendors for a quotation.
