A New ALA Store is Coming!

The ALA Store is a project of the Publishing Services Department of the American Library Association, which develops products that support the educational goals of the organization and meet the needs of the information services community. Revenue from products in the ALA Store provides direct support to the programs and initiatives of the American Library Association.

About the ALA Store
The current ALA Store will soon be completely updated, filled with user-friendly features based on your suggestions. Our attractive new interface will help you to browse ALA products and publications by product type or by area of interest.

The new ALA Store will remember the contents of your cart for up to 30 days, so you can always come back later and pick up right where you left off.
Our new Wishlist will allow you to store items of interest for later purchase. Email your Wishlist to friends and colleagues directly from the ALA site.
Product descriptions for books will include handy links to Library Thing, WorldCat, and bookmarking sites like Del.ici.ous.
RSS feeds can alert you to new products.

A "Print for Purchase Order" feature will generate a printer-friendly order summary, including tax and shipping charges. A running shopping cart total will make checkout always just one easy click away. There will be no disruption in the filling or shipment of your orders!

As always, we will be here to help with any questions you may have at 800-545-2433, extension 2427 or email us at After you've had a chance to try out our new site, we would like to hear your comments and suggestions, which you can quickly provide using the Feedback feature on our new site. Thank you for shopping with the ALA Store!
