[Michlib-l] Books in foreign languages

Hello Michlib!

For those of you who have collections of books written in various
foreign languages, I'm wondering who you purchase these books from, do
you do your own marc records and processing, or outsource these (or does
the vendor supply these services)?

Our library has a collection of books in foreign languages but we have
not added to it in a long time, and would like to. We don't have a
cataloger here and I asked Ingram (our main vendor) about purchasing
books in other languages; their response was they only provide marc
records for books purchased in Spanish.

Thank you so much for your time!
