More vendor competition

Looks like Amazon is getting in on the processing action:
“Amazon.com today announced it has launched Library Processing, enabling its thousands of library customers to receive Machine-Readable Cataloging (MARC) records and have books and other media they order from Amazon.com fitted with Mylar jackets, barcodes, and other essential preparation services”

I suppose that’s convenient for a lot of libraries out there. I just hope it doesn’t affect my work too much (that damn Canadian dollar seems to be doing enough damamage here!) Actually, I think it’s great that Amazon is giving their customers what they want and need. Always good to have a satisfied customer!

  2. I tlooks like they just send their customers to Bibliofile, MArcive or some other vendor that’s already out there. So they aren’t cataloguing their stuff itself, just processing it and having others catalogue.
