Shelf Ready Processing

Askews and Holts (AHLS) provide a range of processing solutions to prepare items for immediate receipt and use by libraries.

The AHLS book processing team take great pride in working with our libraries to provide the highest quality and most efficient service possible. We employ teams of experienced and highly skilled staff who have a full understanding of library specifications and requirements.

Our expertise extends to the provision of Library of Congress and Dewey classification and we provide flexible spine label formats that support all library classification schemes. Sample formats are available on request.

The AHLS jacketing team are fully trained in all aspects of book protection. Again the library specifications are taken into account and whether the choice is sleeves, wallets or laminate, libraries can be assured that the best quality products are used at all times.

We have RFID solutions for all major RFID providers and are able to fit and programme tags to library requirements, for print and multimedia material, and in some cases we are able to overprint the ownership stamp detail onto the tag.

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.
