Facet Publishing, the commercial publishing and bookselling arm of CILIP: the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, is the leading publisher of books for library and information professionals worldwide.

We know it's important to our authors and our readership that we maintain the quality and credibility of what we publish so we encourage our writers' peers to evaluate all the content we commission. We also use our editorial advisory board comprising thought leaders from around the world in a variety of sectors as a sounding board for our list development ideas.

Our books are available in print and digitally and we have close relationships with library suppliers, bookshops, distributors and agents throughout the world who keep regularly updated with accurate bibliographic data. We have a team of international representatives and agents who understand their local markets and can build nuanced relationships with academics, libraries and trade customers in their territories. Our books are also available through all major online booksellers.

We know that our reach and understanding of our market is our most important asset. We attend industry conferences and seminars in the UK and, via our agents and representatives, around the world. If we can't be there in person, we make sure we are there as sponsors or prize-givers or we insert flyers in packs. We select the most appropriate seminars, unconferences, symposia and webinars and ensure that our authors' content is represented to its target readership. We also make sure that our authors write for a truly global audience. We are committed to increasing the discoverability of our authors' content. We use chapter abstracts to unlock hidden keywords and aid search engine optimization.
