Our professional librarians create and update book lists to fit every librarian's unique needs.

We analyze your existing collection and then compare it to an exemplary collection that meets size, age and distribution standards for your student population. We provide a suggested weeding list of older items in your collection. Below is a sampling of the information provided:
Distribution of Your Dewey Sections
Average Date of Publication
Many school districts are striving to make their library collections more diverse to reflect the school populations and bring awareness to diversity issues. Mackin’s team of professional librarians and teachers have curated a collection of descriptive, curricular tags to assist with this need. We’ve developed a system where users can view a report of their library collection based on our set of tagged titles. The tag report is available as a collection analysis tool to show how your collection is distributed across these curriculum elements.
TitleMatch helps you manage your collection in real time. As you add to your list, titles that are already in your collection are highlighted so that you won’t accidentally order duplicates. TitleMatch allows you to view matches in a collection for a single or multiple locations. Plus, it will tell you if your titles are on a list or previous Mackin orders.
