The YBP/Lindsay and Howes Adult Awards Program
The YBP/Lindsay and Howes Adult Awards Program is an efficient and automatic way for academic libraries to acquire award-winning books. This new program complements the YBP Children's Awards Book Program, a service popular for many years with libraries who have relied upon it to acquire important children's books, such as Newbery and Caldecott winners.
Our Adult Awards Program covers prominent awards such as the Pulitzer Prizes, National Book Awards, and National Book Critics Circle Awards, as well as selected specialized awards including the Hugo Awards, for science fiction, and the Edgar Awards for mysteries. YBP will also cover Canada's Giller Prize and Governor General's Award. Lindsay and Howes, the U.K. division of YBP, will cover prominent British and Irish awards, such as Whitbread, Booker, and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
How the Program Works
A library may enroll in the YBP/Lindsay and Howes Adult Awards Program at any time with a completed Profile Specification form. Libraries may elect coverage for any or all Award categories, winners and nominees when available, and for each can choose to receive automatic shipment of books, or eSlips, which can be used to place orders.
Libraries electing coverage for British or Irish awards will need to have a Lindsay and Howes account. U.S. and Canadian awards require a YBP account.
Please contact your YBP representative to discuss technical services, or for any other type of assistance. If you do not have a YBP account, send an email to for more information.
