Find catalogues

There are two types of catalogues in CataList: seasonal and custom catalogues. Seasonal catalogues are available to everyone, and custom catalogues can be made available to anyone who has the link or can be limited to allow access only to specific people. 

Seasonal Catalogues

Seasonal catalogues are public-facing catalogues that are viewable by anyone who visits the CataList website. Publishers load ISBNs into the CataList system in these catalogues, which can include backlist, monthly and annual timeframes as well as the standard seasons.  Once an ISBN is loaded into CataList, it can be used in additional seasonal and custom catalogues at no additional cost to the publisher. For information on building seasonal catalogues, see the Create and Edit Seasonal Catalogues section.

CataList users can find seasonal catalogues on the Home page, in the catalogue list, on any publisher's page or in search results. 


The most recently published seasonal catalogues are displayed on the CataList Home page under the Newest Catalogues header. Use the carousel arrows to scroll through more.

Click on any catalogue name or cover image to view the contents of the catalogue. 


Use the Catalogue List to sort and filter the list of available catalogues.

Sort by clicking on any column header, click a second time to reverse the sort order. Filter results in the table by publisher, season or year to narrow the results.

Click on a catalogue name to view the contents of the catalogue. 


All publishers using CataList have their own Publisher Page where all of their catalogues are posted. Publisher Pages can be accessed from the Publishers section of the CataList Home page, or by clicking on a publisher's logo when viewing titles.

Use the anchors or filters to limit down the list of catalogues displayed.

When returning matches on search terms, the CataList search results page links the most recent seasonal catalogue in the title details. Click the link to see the full catalogue.

Custom Catalogues

Custom catalogues can only contain ISBNs that have already been uploaded to CataList via a seasonal catalogue, and are only viewable by the recipients of that catalogue. These ISBNs can then be re-combined into a custom catalogue for specific recipients. Check out our Create and Edit Custom Catalogue section for more information on building custom catalogues.

Custom catalogues can be accessed in different ways, depending on how the catalogue creator has shared the catalogue with you.

A list of all the custom catalogues you have created can be found in the My Custom Catalogues tab on My Page.

A list of custom catalogues which have been sent to you can be found in the Received Catalogues tab on My Page. This list will contain the name and link to the received custom catalogue, the date it was received, and the name and company of the person who sent it to you.

For retailer, media and library type accounts this is the default display tab on your My Page view.

Custom catalogues, particularly themed catalogues or groups of titles that have appeal to broader groups or buyers, can also be posted by publishers directly to their Publisher Page. These catalogues are posted in the right sidebar of the publisher's page.
