Collections Management


We offer processing, circulation and mending supplies to member libraries at a substantial discount. Please contact Krystal at (785)776-4741 Ext. 808, or Delivery by USPS, Courier, or Book Van depending on size and quantity of items ordered.


Member libraries can order books using Baker & Taylor’s Title Source 360 portal which offers generous discounts for materials as well as the opportunity to track purchases. Click buttons below for brief instructions. For additional assistance, please contact or call
(785) 776-4741 Ex 807.


Cataloging and classification for library materials purchased through Baker & Taylor or from other vendors can be supplied by NCKLS. Books or materials received as gifts or already owned by member libraries may also be sent to system headquarters for cataloging and processing. Records for all materials cataloged through NCKLS are automatically added to the
Kansas Library Catalog.

Member libraries may choose to have book covers, cards, pockets, and labels added to books as needed. This allows libraries to receive materials in shelf-ready format. Fees for cataloging and processing differ based on service and library type.


Weeding is an important part of collection management. NCKLS recommends the CREW manual for weeding. Weeding is another term for de-selection. We want your collection to stay current, relevant, and in good condition for your community. Email us.
