James Bennett has a distribution arm called Inbooks. Inbooks was formally created in July 2004 and became it's own business unit at that time. Inbooks represents dozens of presses, predominantly university, scholarly, and specialist presses to the ANZ book trade.  They work on a separate system to James Bennett and have different sales, marketing and customer service teams.  Libraries receive extremely competitive pricing on all of our agency titles and we hold inventory in our Brookvale premises.

One of the advantages of being part of the James Bennett business is the access to libraries with the wonderful LIS lists represented by Inbooks - Facet Publishing, ALA, Neal Schuman, Libraries Unlimited and more.  To help support and promote new releases from these LIS presses, James Bennett set up a dedicated mailing list for customers wanting to know more about LIS releases.  You can update your James Bennett e-newsletter subscription next time you receive something from us or you can contact Marketing to ensure you're added to the Library Science newsletter.

We also feature occasional LIS titles on The Bennett Blog.  As the blog as now moved to this new website (isn't it fabulous?) you'll find alerts and news from us here.  Of course if you want to see the original you can still find it here.

One of the books we want to highlight for libraries is a new one from Facet Publishing called Read to Succeed: Strategies to engage children and young people in reading for pleasure.  Edited by Joy Court, the book reflects the impact libraries can have in growing readers for the future.

An edited collection contributed by expert practitioners, it covers all aspects of promoting reading to and with children and young people from birth right through to teenage years, including the following key topics:
