McNaughton® Lease 

Give them what they want —

when they want it!

McNaughton® Lease subscription program is a hassle-free way for libraries to establish rotating collections of hot titles.

Delight your patrons with a selection of the latest releases.

Each plan is credited with a specific number of allowances, which the library expends by ordering titles throughout the subscription year. The number of allowances required per book is based on the publisher’s list price. Unused allowances automatically roll over into the next subscription year, for as long as you continue your McNaughton® Lease service.

Using Bibz®, Brodart's free online ordering and collection development tool, customers can review, select, and order titles online. Available balance and title status information are also viewable at any time – no other vendor offers this level of insight.
