LDA Publishers has been serving librarians, media and information specialists for over 25 years. LDA's library directories were an immediate success and have remained the premiere source of library information not available in any other directory. It is the directory "high- achiever" librarians turn to first for contact, networking, library access, special collection, product and service information and much more!
The Directories are Official!
LDA' s Directories are done in cooperation with the New Jersey State Library, the New Jersey Library Association and the Connecticut State Library. Our focus is on bringing full-blown and accurate library profiles that are not available anywhere else! Librarians, our greatest supporters, tell us how valuable the Directories are in the performance of their professional practice. The highest compliment paid to LDA is that librarians come back every year for over a quarter century to buy the new annual edition!
