Books in Print, now in its 67th Edition, is the go-to source for bibliographic information on the over one million titles published or distributed in the United States since 2005. This seven-volume, 20,000-page edition offers users immediate access to over 1,650,000 active titles from over 122,000 U.S. publishers.

This new edition, with over 420,000 more entries than the previous edition, is a vital resource for any library. This reference tool allows users to track down any title-even hard-to-find titles from small presses. With so many titles, authors, illustrators, publishers, wholesalers, and distributors all in one consolidated source, finding the key information library patrons need to track down their favorite books has never been easier.

Just as in previous years, 2015-2016's Books in Print is separated into seven large volumes, for categorization by Title, Author, Publisher Name, and Wholesaler & Distributor Name. All indexes are presented alphabetically, then numerically, ensuring effortless research for the user.

Volume I begins with a Preface and a special "How to Use" guide, with information on Compilation, Data Acquisition, ISBN Agency, SAN (Standard Address Number), and more, followed by enlarged sample entries for the Title Index, Publisher Name Index, and Wholesaler & Distributor Name Index. Next come lists of Publisher Country Codes, Country Sequence, Language Codes, and Abbreviations, making sure users can quickly and efficiently navigate this guide.

The Title Index comprises the remainder of Volume I, as well as the entirety of Volume II, Volume III, Volume IV, and the first half of Volume V. Each entry in this Index contains definitive information about each book, including: Title, Contributor, Edition, Publication Year, Number of Pages, Grade, Binding Type, ISBN, Publisher, and Imprint Symbol.

Featuring hundreds of thousands of contributors, the second half of Volume V begins the Author Index, where users can search for all works written by a specific contributor. The Author Index continues through Volume VI and the first part of Volume VII.

The Publisher Name Index follows in Volume VII, and each entry provides important company details such as Publisher Name, ISBN Prefixes, Division, CIP Identifier, SAN, Distributors, and Contact Information. Volume VII-and the entire edition-finally closes with the Wholesaler & Distributor Name Index, providing key components such as Distributor Name, ISBN Prefix, Division, SAN, and Contact Information.

For 67 consecutive years, R.R. Bowker's Books in Print has served as a top-shelf resource for librarians and their patrons across the country. With over 1,600,000 titles on file, this updated reference tool continues to provide valuable, detailed information on all recently published books far and wide.
