What's this YBP?

From time to time, the NHAIS Help Desk gets a question about the YBP Libr Serv holding that appears on some titles in OCLC FirstSearch. That's YBP Library Services, a vendor in Contoocook. Formerly Yankee Book Peddlar, it's a unit of Baker & Taylor that serves academic libraries. It is not a lending institution.

You can get more information about any OCLC member institution by entering its name (e.g., YBP Libr Serv) as Institution Name or code (e.g., YDX) as OCLC Symbol on the Find an OCLC library page.
