News Update from CLCD

CLCD Introduces CLiPR Service for Publishers

Children’s Literature Publishers Reviews (CLiPR) is a new service offered to publishers by The Children’s Literature Comprehensive Database (CLCD), the trusted resource for information about Children’s and Young Adult media. CLiPR is another way to help increase sales, whether you sell on line or through other channels. How can it do this? CLiPR allows publishers to link the titles on their website to the power of CLCD. By doing so it eliminates the need for the publisher staff to locate reviews, cut-and-paste the review text, and attach the reviews to their current and backlist titles. Customers will appreciate the easy access to the range of information available on a particular title that CLCD presents. They will have access not only to the reviews but also to the reading metrics, awards and prizes, and links to curriculum tools and other information.

“A subscription to CLiPR has the full richness of CLCD behind it but makes it specific for each publisher’s title. It is a huge timesaver for a publishing house.” - Marilyn Courtot, President of CLCD

“CLCD is a godsend for someone like me who has more work than time. It’s a one-stop research destination, and I use it constantly when looking for quotes for book-jacket copy or checking out an author’s backlist.” - Margery Cuyler, Publisher, Marshall Cavendish Children’s Books

CLiPR is a new service with benefits to both publishers and their customers. Informed customers make better decisions, therefore, your titles should sail out of the warehouse. Approximately 2500 new reviews are added to CLCD each month from 38 review sources. Other monthly updates include those for Best Books, Awards and Prizes, and links to author and illustrator Web Resources, Features and Interviews.
