Custom catalogues are created using any ISBNs that have already been published in any seasonal catalogue, including trade-only catalogues. You can think of it as building a playlist — just add the items you want, in the order you want them, which you can save and optionally share.
Custom catalogues can be created for specific recipients (buyers, media, internal staff, etc.) or can be made available to anyone who has the link. Custom catalogues with specific recipients can only be viewed by the catalogue's creator and the recipient(s). These catalogues are not displayed on the CataList home page, nor will they be listed on your Publisher Page. Instead, they will be listed on My Page under the Custom Catalogues tab (for creators) or the Received Catalogues tab (for recipients).
Custom catalogues that are open to all users can optionally be displayed on your account's Publisher Page. Anyone who has the link to it will be able to view the catalogue, even if they are not signed in to CataList.

Create a custom catalogue
There are three ways to create a custom catalogue:
Create from My Page
Click on any image to view at full size.
Create from the catalogue toolbar
Create using the “Add to catalogue” buttons
The Copy and Move buttons are available in catalogue views, while the “Add to catalogue” button is available in search results views and title detail pages. All three buttons allow you to create new custom catalogues without leaving your current page. Any titles that you select during this process are pre-added to your new custom catalogue. Learn more about quick editing tools in the next section.
Edit a custom catalogue
Custom catalogues in your account can be edited whether they are in Draft or Published status. While private catalogues can only be edited by the creator, collaborative catalogues can be edited by anyone in the account. Account Managers, however, can edit any private or collaborative custom catalogues that were created in the company’s account. Learn more about user permissions for custom catalogues.
