Approval Plan

Atkin's library has developed several book approval plans with our book vendor, YBP.   YBP supplies books to the library on automatic receipt based on profiles and agreements established with the Library and the UNC Charlotte community.

• Award Winning Children's Books
• University Press
• Selected Trade Publishers
• New York Times Book Review Titles

Books arrive at the Library shelf-ready — labeled and cataloged. Within a very short time, books received through the approval plan are processed and sent to the New Books shelves on the first floor of the Library. The books reside on the New Book shelves for 2 to 4 weeks and are then sent to the regular collections.
