Where To Search...

Two New Features
We are are pleased to announce two new features that we hope will make book hunting on viaLibri both easier and more productive.

1- If you are among our many users who regularly search for early editions only to receive search results that are swamped with modern reprints then our first new feature should be of great interest. We have now added a check box that allows you to exclude from your search results all books which have been assigned an ISBN number. The general use of ISBN numbers did not begin until the 1970s, so it is fairly safe to assume that any book which has been assigned one will not have been printed before then. Most online second-hand booksellers are careful to include ISBNs, when known, as part of their descriptions. By checking the box marked "No ISBNs" you can thus filter out a large number of modern reprints of older titles. The filtering is not complete, since there are still some booksellers who do not use ISBN when cataloging their books, but the number that can be elimated in this way is substantial. When used along with our "No PODs" check box you should be able to avoid much of the annoying chaff that would otherwise clutter your searches for old and rare books. And we have also updated the Search Manager to make use of this new filter, so if you are using Libribot you can also update your wants to reduce the number of unwanted matches.

2- On another front, we have just added to our search results a short notation indicating the country from which a listed book will be shipped. The information will be found, in brackets, to the right of the bookseller's name. If you are concerned about delivery time or shipping costs, this feature will help you to identify books that can be shipped from someplace near by. Over the years many users have asked us to include this information and we are very happy to be able to do so at last. Unfortunately, a couple of sites do not yet give us the location data we need and cannot be included in this feature; but we think that "most" is still better than "none".

Let viaLibri Search Your Website.
Would you like viaLibri to search your bookselling website and report your books with a link labeled "Direct from Seller"? To find out what you need to do please click HERE.

We look forward to hearing from you.

New Lower Price For Premium Services
If you have recently been thinking about subscribing to viaLibri Premium Services you now have even less reason to hesitate. We have just lowered the cost of our most basic subscription levels by $5 per month. This means that our prices now start at only $15 per month, or $150 per year (+VAT , where applicable). This service level includes daily Libribot matching for up to 50 permanent wants as well as other useful features. You may even want to upgrade to Level 2 or Level 3 for an extra $5 or $10 per month. But don't worry, if you are disappointed you will be free to cancel at any time and receive a full pro-rata refund for all the days remaining in your enrolment period.

If you decide to give it a try we think you will find Libribot to be a powerful book-hunting tool. You will not be alone. There are already 1454 registered users with over 38,000 active wants being searched every day. If you want to join them and see how it works just go to your Wants Manager and add a few wants of your own. We will then search at least one of these wants every day, for FREE. You may find that this brings you all the matches you need. But if at some point you decide you want to accelerate your search schedule then a Premium Services subscription will be available for as little as $15 per month.

And what if you are already a Premium Services subscriber? You are not forgotten. As we lower the price for new subscribers we will also be applying a retrospective adjustment to your last renewal or enrolment so that you will receive the same savings as those customers who are signing up for the first time today.

We also want to announce that we have just finished making substantial improvements to our subscription management and payment processing systems. The user interface has been significantly improved, and you can now easily make secure online payments using your credit card (new) or PayPal.

If you want to learn more about our Premium Services you will find more information HERE and HERE.

And if you have additional questions you can always contact us HERE.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome NVvA
We have just added another important group of booksellers to our search results: the Nederlandsche Vereeniging van Antiquaren (NVvA). The members of this Dutch bookselling association, founded in 1935, are all affiliates of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers and include the most prominent and respected antiquarian booksellers in the Netherlands.

Their newly created book search engine has just been launched and is expected to grow quickly in the near future. We are very pleased to welcome them on board.

Two New Features
We have just added a pair of new features that we know will be of interest to at least a few of our most active users. It is now possible to perform multiple deletes of unwanted match results without having to manually check the check box for each separate item. Once this feature is activated you only have to check the items you want to keep.

We have also added the ability to perform bulk deletes of Libribot matches that no longer need to be saved. This feature has been requested by several of our users and we are pleased to finally make it available.

Details on using these new features will be found HERE. and HERE.

Welcome TomFolio!
We are pleased to announce the addition of TomFolio [] to the bookselling sites we now search. This puts nearly 2 million additional listings within our reach, many of them offered exclusively on their site. Libribot is also including books from TomFolio in its searches.

TomFolio was launched 13 years ago. It is unusual among multi-dealer bookselling websites in being organized as a cooperative owned and directed by its booksellers. As booksellers ourselves, we are always happy to see other bookselling sites being run by actual booksellers. Welcome TomFolio; long may you prosper!

New Features and Improvements
The latest viaLibri upgrade has now been launched. It includes several new features and numerous enhancements that we believe will make viaLibri even more powerful and useful than ever. Much of what is new has come in response to suggestions received from our users. We hope our latest efforts have satisfied those requests. Other less visible improvements have also been made to improve performance and reliability. Work on these will remain ongoing. If you are one of our many regular visitors we hope you will be pleased with the new version of viaLibri we offer to you now. Please try it and let us know what you think. As soon as the last bugs have been eliminated from this new release we will start work again on the next set of improvements. As always, your continued feedback in that process will be greatly appreciated. Here is a summary of the most important new features you will find:

Book Search
  • Unwanted search results can be removed.

  • It is now possible to remove items from your search results using a checkbox that appears with each item. You can check all the items that are not of interest and remove them from your results with one click of a button.

  • Improved translation

  • We are now able to identify the language used with each book description. If you click the "translate" button the text will automatically be translated into your native language, as recorded in your browser language preference settings. (Or you can choose a different language if you prefer). The scroll menu is no longer required and over 60 languages are available as both source and target.

  • Improved grouping algorithm

  • Some careful back-end modifications have further improved our ability to group multiple listings for the same book under a single entry. Repetitive entries are now significantly reduced..
Wants Manager / Libribot
  • Updated Display

  • We have significantly revised the way want records are displayed in the Want Manager. Readability and navigation are now much improved.

  • Note Field

  • All want records now include a "Note" field that can be used to record information you may want to save regarding an individual want. Bibliographic references, customer names and any other related details can now be saved for future reference.

  • Libribot Match removal

  • You can now delete records for any Libribot matches you may not want to save.

  • Match Results for Individual Wants

  • It is now possible to view a separate list of Libribot matches for each of your specific wants. These lists can be accessed directly from the Wants manager, or from the individual wants records that can be accessed from Libribot match results.

  • livre-rare-book

  • livre-rare-book has recently been added to libribot searches.
A New Feature for Premium Services Subscribers
  • Libristat

  • Summary valuation statistics are now generated from each manual search and can be displayed a the top of your results screen. Statistics include average, median, highest and lowest prices for all matching items along with a count of the total of unique matches made, excluding most duplicates. Statistics are recalculated when items are removed from results. Libristat is optional and can be easily turned on and off. It is only available to viaLibri Premium Services subscribers.
