Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Below is a brief outline of the most significant recent changes to the ABA Book Buyer's Handbook online.

Booksellers are strongly encouraged to alert ABA of changing terms that come to their attention. Publishers are asked to inform ABA immediately of any changes to terms and contact information.

A form is available at http://handbook.bookweb.org/form.jsp that booksellers and publishers can use to report changing terms. Within the next month, the association will be launching the Publisher Administration section of the Handbook site, which will allow publishers to view and edit their listings online. All companies currently in the Handbook will receive a letter within the next few weeks, which will include their company access code.
