Mining the Backlist to Engage Readers of all Ages


New releases get all of the marketing buzz, but for even the most avid readers, the backlist is also full of new releases they might enjoy — if only they were easier to find and borrow. The backlist also represents great readalike opportunities for new releases with long wait lists.

Last year, 72% of the 20,000+ titles that were checked out at least once on Comics Plus were published before 2022. That’s the power of the backlist!

Join us on Wednesday, February 28 at 3pm ET / Noon PT as we spotlight some of the most popular backlist titles from Andrews McMeel, Lerner, and Yen Press — including Big Nate; Milk & Mocha; Minecraft; Lily Renee, Escape Artist; Crush; and Sasaki and Miyano — along with new and backlist recommendations for readers of all ages.

The 60-minute presentation will be moderated by LibraryPass’ Guy LeCharles Gonzalez and include a live Q&A segment where our panelists will answer attendees’ specific questions submitted via the registration form and during the session.

A Certificate of Completion will also be available for live attendees.
