A new partnership between Unbound Concepts and Baker & Taylor will help teachers, librarians and curriculum buyers search, identify, and discover content to best serve students in the classroom and library. Knowledgespeak brought this interesting news to us in their article, “Unbound Concepts and Baker & Taylor partner to help publishers improve discoverability of K12 content in classrooms and libraries.”

Baker & Taylor will integrate and display Unbound Concepts’ Artifact Access, which allows publishers and their customers to search, browse, discover or describe their text using topics, themes, educational characteristics, literary elements, teaching standards and more by utilizing the extensive artifact taxonomy.

This partnership was announced at the 41st annual meeting of the Educational Book and Media Association (EBMA). The Association’s mission is to foster a unique community that brings together a wide range of wholesalers and publishers in order to address the book and media buying needs of the educational marketplace. Together, Unbound Concepts and Baker & Taylor are providing a useful discovery tool and community voice to publishers who supply books and other materials to schools and libraries.
