In a unique partnership with Amazon.co.uk, Talis, the market leading IT solutions company for local government, has teamed up with the leading online retailer to offer libraries a way of recycling stock that is no longer needed by the library.
Talis has built software that links regional libraries’ systems to Amazon.co.uk’s Marketplace platform allowing them to sell their unwanted stock on the website instead of simply disposing of it. The revenue made will contribute to the purchase of new titles for the local community. Amazon.co.uk’s customers will also benefit from the increased selection of titles and prices that the libraries can offer.
Amazon.co.uk’s Marketplace is a unique feature that allows customers to buy and sell new, used and collectable items on the same page as Amazon.co.uk sells the item new. This side-by-side placement dramatically expands the selection available to customers.
