YBP has the people and tools to help all libraries easily, and efficiently, get the right books.
YBP recognizes that librarians need to quickly and efficiently find the right books to meet their collection development goals, and we work with libraries of all sizes to provide a complete, customizable collection development and acquisitions workflow solution.
YBP's GOBI® platform is a one-stop shop for finding the right books to develop your library's e-book and print book collection. Find more than 13 million e-books and print books in one place, or choose the titles you want from librarian-curated Spotlight Lists, personalized notification lists or simple searches. GOBI makes it easy for you to find the books you need.
GOBI also provides one single source for ordering and invoicing all of your books. Choose from multiple platforms and purchasing options for e-book orders, and never buy the same book twice with GOBI's duplication control.
Finally, receive cataloging records, get unlimited user access for your staff, and run reports on your library's collection — all in GOBI.

“Selectors have found GOBI to be easy to work with, all agree that the approval plans cut down on selection time by providing high quality recommendations, and from my perspective the administration of the accounts is made easy by the terrific support I get from YBP staff.”
