The New Books Service is an electronic showcase for new Canadian publications featuring forthcoming print and electronic releases from Canadian publishers, on Library and Archives Canada's website. The service has tremendous benefits for Canadian publishers, booksellers, readers and libraries.
The New Books Service is an enhancement to the Cataloguing in Publication (CIP) program that assists publishers to promote their latest titles, and helps readers to discover them. To participate in the New Books Service, you can submit files for any or all of: cover art, table of contents, sample text, information about the author and illustrator, reviews, and details on awards and author readings.
Please attach your files in formats that follow these specifications:
The browse function within the form allows you to easily select files from your own computer and attach them to the form to send them to us electronically.
Note: Publishers must complete the Permission section of the online form, indicating that they either own the intellectual property rights or have obtained all necessary consents from the intellectual property rights holders for the material submitted to the New Books service.
Through the new interactive process for the Cataloguing in Publication programme, authenticated bibliographic data will be returned via the Internet to publishers for inclusion in their publications, along with the confirmation that we have received your permission to use the New Books material.
Once we receive your files, we will create a New Books record for each title that will include authoritative Cataloguing in Publication data along with the text and graphics you provide. Our powerful, user-friendly search provides basic and advanced search options so that readers can find favourite authors easily, or search by title, subject, keyword, publisher name or Amicus number.
“New This Month” is a special feature of our New Books collection that highlights the most recent additions to the service. In this section, you can browse by subject to find new books of interest, using the familiar Dewey Decimal Classification Schedule.
