We employ teams of experienced and highly skilled staff who have a full understanding of library specifications and requirements.

We provide Library of Congress and Dewey classification and offer flexible spine label formats that support all library classification schemes.

Libraries can supply their own processing material or these can be provided.

Whenever possible Askews and Holts work to industry standards and we liaise with libraries to provide both a cost effective solution for book and multimedia processing and a first class shelf ready service.
