Language Sets

Our most popular program for libraries

Are you looking books that are available with MARC records? Our language sets program is just for you. We customize our sets to meet your needs. Follow our easy steps and you will be on your way to building or enriching your World Language collection. 25 books per set.


Choose a language

Our most popular languages are Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, French, German, Gujarati, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Punjabi, Persian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Urdu and Vietnamese. If there is another language you need, let us know! We can also do mixed language sets.


Build your set

Our language sets are not prepackaged. We take your selection criteria to choose books that will be of benefit for your library system. Let us know if you want:

  • Adult or children's books.
  • Fiction or non-fiction books.
  • Native authors or translations.

MARC records

MARC records are included with our language sets. Just tell us how you want them.

  • OCLC number only (you have your own people to do the local editing).
  • Simple matching OCLC record (your people don't have time for searching, but will do the local editing).
  • Upgraded matching OCLC record. Our people will do the following:

      A) Upgrade it to a full level record; B) Check and correct access points; C) Add a LCCN or Dewey call number; D) Add subject headings as needed.

  • MARC records are sent via e-mail attachment, available on our FTP site or can be sent directly to your local OCLC online save file.

Accept Delivery

Shipping is included in our Language Set price. All you need to do is wait for the shipment to arrive.


Processing (optional)

Shelf-ready processing is available for a nominal additional charge. We will be more than happy to affix spine labels, barcodes, RFID tags, property stamps, etc. We can help you get the material to the hands of your patrons FASTER!
