Library mailing lists can be used to access libraries across the nation directly, or as an excellent cross-referencing tool to identify specific consumers. According to the American Library Association (ALA), there were approximately 117,664 libraries in the United States as of September 2005. The overwhelming majority of these – about 94,000 – are school libraries, and therefore are good markets for student books, educational software, and other learning materials. There are about 9,200 public libraries, 3,500 academic libraries, 1,200 government libraries, and over 300 military libraries. The ALA also estimates about 9,500 “special” libraries including corporate, medical, legal, and religion-based libraries. Most, if not all, can be accessed through library mailing lists available from 1000Lists.
Our list brokers can help you find the most obvious consumers – the librarians themselves – through several sources of reliable library mailing lists. These are the administrators and decision makers who control the purchasing of books and other materials. In fact, it’s these “other materials” that make up a growing percentage of budgets and can include:
- CD ROM-Based Media
- DVD/VHS Movies, Documentaries, Learning Guides
- Computer Equipment, Related Software and Equipment
- Internet Access
- Child and Adult Crafts and Activities
- And more…
Library mailing lists can also be used for other offers including standard office supplies, cleaning supplies, information systems, furniture and desks, and everyday items that help enhance and maintain the physical buildings and collections.
